The Minsk based Concept/Art/Confession Group presents the project Reconstruction N0.1 (2011), a selection of photo-objects created by Alexey Schlyk and sculptures by Anton Nichiparuk, currently shown at the Kunst Licht Photo Art Gallery in Shanghai. These artworks filled with poignant meanings and visual features examine the primal beauty of human body and the crossover between femininity and masculinity. Although the artists call into question the concept of ‘archetype’ and the universal symbols it might entail, yet they seem more interested in what resides beyond the realm of the quintessence of human body, such as imperfection, the ordinary, the effects of the passing of time, and the dramatic nature of humanness.
