Artist Statement:


MOSTON is a 12-foot tall suspended inflatable sculpture that embodies the cyberfusion of two geographically distant locales: Moscow and Boston. While MOSTON’s three-dimensional form references ethnically specific artifacts, the visual appeal and conceptual ingenuity of “matryoshkas” reach audiences beyond Russia and Russian diasporas. A universally understood symbol of sequential creation, these toys offer a fitting framework for evoking the concentric evolution of Moscow’s and Boston’s city armatures.
