Artworks by this artist
The Eminent Direction of Thoughts, 2011
Ukranian-American visual artists Ilya Kabakov (b. 1933, Dnepropetrovsk) and Emilia (b. 1945, Dnepropetrovsk) create installation art and conceptual art. The couple has worked together since 1989. This installation by the artist duo shows a chair in the middle of a dimly lit, gloomy room, reminiscent of a cell. The coloured threads connecting the chair to the ceiling symbolize the philosophical thoughts of whoever will spend time in this room.
