Paper Architects of Russia


Anna Yeroshenko, one of the artists whose work is currently on display in Foster Gallery, sites the movement of “Paper Architects” as an influence on her work.  The best known of this group is Brodsky and Utkin, two architects working in the Soviet Union during the period of Glasnost.  They are best known for their intricate and whimsical etchings, but have created numerous sculptures, buildings, blueprints, and objects.  You can learn more about the duo here.  Above is Brodsky and Utkin’s Monument of the Year 2000.
