vlad kissel's teardrop-shaped pavilion in moscow recalls the region's traditional architecture

vlad kissel has installed zern’, a wooden, teardrop-shaped pavilion, in one of moscow’s open squares. the structure’s main timber framework also contains other natural materials. at its center, located directly beneath the striking oculus, the artist has included living plants. a bundle of flowers and various botanical grasses sprout from the pavilion’s circular podium.

kissel’s drop-shape construction references traditional, slavonic architecture and aesthetics. by using this shape, the overall installation takes on a new meaning — an emphasis on our close relationship with past generations and the evolution of the culture’s artistic tendencies.

despite the use of rectangular wood segments, the structure maintains an effortless curve
