The audience had to engage fully with the interactive installation by Moscow artists’ collective Kuflex, becoming part of it in the process.

Especially for the Volvo Art Session 2018, artists’ collective Kuflex developed a panoramic version of its “Quantum Space” installation. No wonder that it cast an instant spell over visitors to Zurich’s Schiffbau centre: the audience was able to truly immerse itself in the walk-through work of art and interact with it, very much in keeping with the “Human meets digital” theme. And this is exactly what the three Moscow artists want to achieve: “Our installations are spaces in which humans meet digital projections. This is where creativity is born. The viewer is no longer passive; he becomes the artist himself.”

Russian artists’ collective Kuflex was formed in 2012 by video artist Igor Tatarnikov, programmer and researcher Denis Perevalov and producer Ksenia Lyashenko. Kuflex projects interact with humans and can be seen at many international exhibitions, festivals and museums as well as at R&D centres in Russia, Israel and Turkey.
