An attentive and subtle look at surrounding nature is the distinctive feature of Alexander Podgorniy’s works. The exhibited objects do not reveal the secret of its origin immediately. All these works intentionally balancing on the border of artificial and natural were found by the artist in their natural environment- on a neglected sports ground, on the lakeside of Baikal or in the ramshackle houses. Presented in the form of «ready-made», produced by nature, they attracted his attention as documental evidence of unapparent at first glance, interaction between nature and human-made culture, when nature turns household waste into fanciful sculptures or tries to get along together with erected barriers. In today’s industrial overproduction such artist’s gesture looks almost radical because there lies an idea of a minimal interference into the surrounding reality and respect for freedom. At the same time, it is inseparable from reflection about contemporary culture and critique of consumer society, which now involves an appeal to nature.
