The project Domino is based on the popular board game, collective and interactive in nature, from the recent Soviet past. Spectators are invited to “play” with the giant domino tiles (40x50x100cm) by moving them around the courtyard and creating new mobile and ever-changing models. The courtyard is constantly transformed by these interesting configurations of individually developed and self-sufficient art objects.

Working primarily in painting, collage and mixed media, Rudyev’s work explores the wide variety of socio-political models around us, challenging the viewer to contemplate how these multiple, often contradictory systems can coexist.
