The Dmitry Krymov Laboratory presents the Russian pavilion at the foremost international exhibition of architecture and scenography, the Prague Quadrennial.
The Russian pavilion receives the Golden Triga – the exhibition’s "grand prix.” Such success had not been enjoyed by Russian participants for almost 30 years.
The following took part in the creation and design of the exhibit: Dmitry Krymov, Maria Tregubova, Vera Martynova, Etel Ioshpa, Elizaveta Dzutseva, Anna Kartseva (Perezhogina), Alexandra Osipova, Mariya Volskaya, Konstantin Terentyev, Leonid Shulyakov, Aleksandr Nazarov.
Each country is given a space of about thirty square meters, maybe a bit larger. This is what we came up with. The pavilion is made up of two rooms in a tenement, the apartments of which were of course later turned into communal apartments. The partition between rooms is broken. On the ceiling are two plasterwork patterns with a beam in between them. Two sockets where chandeliers once hung. It’s raining. The ceiling is leaking. Water is dripping from the ceiling into massive, many-colored bottles. We bought them at Izmailovsky – we were awfully pleased! And at the entrance, we put size 50 galoshes and umbrellas. Visitors put on the galoshes, took umbrellas, walked around the pavilion, and looked at models by our most famous designers – Borovsky, Sheintsis, Barkhin, Orlov – for Chekhov’s plays. And on the walls were 12 switches, and across each one written: Borovsky, Sheintsis, and so on. You could turn on a light over any of the models. There were 12 of them, and they stood on special stands, made from pieces of old furniture, from books, from old china. It’s as though they were put up on relics of Soviet communal life.
