Konstantin Simun: The Sacred in the Profane
Konstantin Simun: The Sacred in the Profane at the Museum of Russian Icons, 203 Union St., Clinton. Konstantin Simun often poses the question “trash or treasure?” when speaking of his sculptures. Simun asks us to see spiritual images in banal plastic vessels such as milk jugs and crates. He accomplishes this through a slight alteration to the original form, a shift in orientation, or the fusing of one object with another. These objects are so ubiquitous and ordinary that we rarely stop to consider their formal qualities, let alone contemplate them as symbolic or transcendent objects. Visit museumofrussianicons.org.
