It has always been interesting for me to know how 5 human receptors function and interact; I have been interested in 5 sense channels to the real world. If the information gets through one channel only, it is true but not enough. Only having the whole picture our imagination will be sufficient enough. It is similar to flat and dimensional image, as mono and stereo sound, or even quadro in our case. I was really inspired by the idea of installation. I am glad that we’ve managed to realize it.”
Exposition curator, Katerina Taylor, Head of the agency “Art Management”:
“Imagine you are entering the hall in the center of which there are mounted 11 cubes. Next to each one there is the funnel that gives the possibility to get acquainted with the fragrance. You put the hand inside a cube and touch the elements the essences of which are included into the fragrance pyramid – bergamot, lavender, rosemary, rose, cypress, amber, patchouli … You can’t see them, you just presuppose what your hand is touching. All the sides of the cube are decorated with the pictures and verses that appeared as the result of the authors’ acquaintance with the fragrances presented in the installation. Next to the cube there are the earphones where you can listen to the music composed under the influence of the acquaintance with the fragrance.”
Magic ritual of the fragrances acquaintance was created by the creative group: painters Alevtina Kahidze and Lucien Pigeard de Gurbert, poetess Miriam Dragina and music duet Mova – Maxim Troyanov and Alexander Schekochihin based on the haute perfumerie fragrances of the French brands Olibere and Jacques Zolty.
