The Moscow House of Photography made gave the city another treat with the November 1 opening of Vik Muniz. He comes from San Paolo, but today he works and lives in New York. This is a modern artist and photographer who fi nds inspiration in classical works of art, but interprets them in a special manner. You can fi nd images of Mona Lisa in jam or in caramel or a 1950s poster in diamonds. “I always take humor seriously in arts. It is the humor and visual tricks that attract me to a picture,” says the artist.
Muniz’s sense of humor has already been appreciated at the Venice Biennale and MoMA in New York. Now it is Moscow’s turn.
