Private Moon installation by Leonid Tishkov
In our childhood many of us dreamed to reach out and touch the moon. And many of us watched movies in which the hero gives or promises to give a star to his beloved. Besides, many of us believe in magic and make a wish at a falling star. What would be your reaction if you were given the opportunity to get the real moon from the sky and touch it? Meanwhile, Russian artist Leonid Tishkov can make your dream come true. His project “Private Moon” is an installation inspired by the most romantic thoughts and fantasies. Thus, Private Moon tells the story of a man who met the Moon and stayed with it for the rest of his life. In a series of intimate photographs, the Moon helps the artist to overcome loneliness in the universe. Interestingly, Tishkov and his illuminated moon have traveled the world for more than ten years, from Austria to Arctic. However, no one knows where it will be the next time, on the roof of Parisian house, or with you under a blanket.
