Poisons Museum: Sculptural Critiques by Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov

These spindly sculpted lifeforms are the work of Moscow-based artist Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov. After studying bioengineering and philology in university, he turned to art as a way of expressing his curiosity and concerns around science, knowledge acquisition, and biological processes. “Poisons Museum” is a project dedicated to the problem of global information and “information that can be deadly poisonous.” Consisting of object installations, artifacts, and alien-looking creatures, the project mimics the appearance of a laboratory where poisons and infections are studied; however, the non-linear nature of each piece undermines the structures imposed by the sterile settings, exposing the blurred line between truth and lies, safety and danger.
