Space Relay exhibition to open inside Yak-42 at VDNKh

Space Relay exhibition to open inside Yak-42 at VDNKh
The exhibition’s first part deals with space, and the second section will have an image of a nursery where people can go and try and dream about their very own space flights.

The Space Relay exhibition involving winners of the Vzlyot project’s third season in the Design category is to open on 27 July inside a Yak-42 aircraft on VDNKh’s Industry Square.

The exhibition’s organisers, Viktoria Makeyeva and Galina Titova, were inspired by the habit of Russian cosmonauts to take various toys into space with them, including things like models of shuttles or space stations and even yoyos and fidget spinners. These items usually belong to their children and serve as improvised terrestrial beacons, lucky charms, national symbols and also can help gauge zero-gravity levels. New characters, created by young designers especially for the exhibition, are waiting for a chance to blast off into outer space.

The exhibition’s first section deals with space where children’s toys fly aboard their own spacecraft. And the second part has an image of a nursery where people can try and dream about their very own space flights.

Designers preferred wood because, in their opinion, it is associated with warm-hearted dreams of children reaching for the stars, flying in their sleep and dreaming of growing up.

The exhibition will be open every day from 27 July until 23 August, except Mondays, from 11am until 10 pm.

VDNKh launched the Vzlyot project on 21 May 2016. The project mostly aims to discover new names and to support young professionals in the area of modern culture. Artists are able to implement their creative ideas and to hold their own exhibitions at VDNKh. The competition’s winners work under the guidance of experienced supervisors and learn how to organise and hold exhibitions during this project.
