The “Cai Guo-Qiang: October” exhibition at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow was an impressive artistic celebration where renowned Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang revisited the Russian Revolution through his bold art. At the heart of this captivating exhibition, Like Mirror played a vital role in manufacturing and installing a 160 square meter Like Mirror mirror ceiling. This mirrored ceiling was used to enhance a huge rye panel decorated with the Soviet symbols of the hammer and sickle.
The effect created by this mirrored ceiling was both impressive and symbolic. It added a unique visual dimension to the exhibition, creating an immersive atmosphere that amplified the impact of Cai Guo-Qiang’s art. Visitors were transported to a world where history and art merged in striking ways.
The exhibition also featured inspiring reinterpretations of works by iconic artists such as Malevich, as well as large-scale installations, including “Fall,” an homage to the film “Battleship Potemkin.” The entire exhibition allowed us to rediscover the history of the Russian Revolution through the prism of contemporary creativity.
The introduction of the Like Mirror mirror ceiling in this exhibition was a bold and innovative choice. He demonstrated the ability of mirrors to transcend the limitations of conventional art, adding a thoughtful and reflective dimension to the way we interact with history and art. This unique collaboration between Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang and Like Mirror helped make the exhibition “Cai Guo-Qiang: October” a memorable experience that left a lasting mark on the contemporary art world.
