All-Russian Museum of Folk Arts and Crafts together with magazine "Decorative Art" represent the project from the cycle "Artist of "DA" Circle" - "Space of an Object". The meaning of an "object" is out of firm definitions: our intuition tells us that this artistic stuff is something between painting and sculpture. Russia is the home of such "objective" way of thinking as well as of abstraction.
