About the work
Aleksandr Tishkov’s work is a critical analysis of ruins, historical remains, anthropology and ecology. Interested in the fluidity and disintegration of monuments, he questions the stability of cultural inheritance and its future influence in the age of the Anthropocene. Using materials such as wood and plaster, his sculptural installations are made up of interconnected objects and structures. Prone to erosion, or used in archaeology, the materials Tishkov employs reference the precarious nature of historical significance.
