Roman Ermakov has been creating public art objects and kinetic costumes for more than 10 years. The artist rose to world fame in 2009 with his avant-garde collection "Living Sculptures". His first personal exhibition "The Dancing Axis of the Fifth Dimension" opened in 2019 and was devoted to urban sculpture. In 2020 Ermakov teamed up with a group of students to develop the six-metre installation "Yula" for the Tavrid art park, and in 2021 his "Stable Composition" became part of an exhibition of public art on Red Square.
Sergei Shekhovstov describes himself as a “classic artist” but, unlike the great sculptors of the past, in his work he uses light and impermanent modern materials. In 2004 Shekhovstov represented Russia at the biennial in São Paulo, and in 2009 he was one of the exhibiting artists at the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Personal exhibitions of his work have been held at the Perm Museum of Contemporary Art (2011) and the Tretyakov Gallery (2014).
