Dom na Prospekte is a fictional, historic architecture reminiscent of the early utopian ideals of the soviet avant-garde. Its profound physical presence is characterized by faded meaning, dimming relevance and relinquished significance. is a suggestion for a building, a model for an experience, a house for an abandoned ideal.A model of an isolated structure cut off from, but still grasping for its history. It consists of inexplicable rooms and spaces. The etymological reasons and circumstances of their existence cannot be clearly traced. Their relevance can no longer be adequately explained. The interwoven, self-exhaustive narratives, chimeras of individual and collective references, are self-engrossed. These are the elements that create the complex experience of the utopian house on the boulevard.

Dom na Prospekte / House On The Boulevard 2012, site specific installation, Central House of the Artist Moscow, mixed media (acrylics, uv- print, wood, graphite, led, neon), about 500cm x 600cm x 800 cm.

shown at the 3rd Moscow Biennale for Young Art in the main show “Under a Tinsel Sun” curated by Kathrin Becker

Dom na Prospekte was created as a site-specific installation especially for the main venue, the Central House of Artists in Moscow. “Dom” was the largest piece of the show. Dealing with reality-production and its consequences, Lukas developed a reference-system about early 1920′s Soviet architecture utopias referring to main influences like Malevitch, Tatlin and Melnikov. It’s structure is based on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s concept drawings for Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin and shows a sequence of spatial concepts from different decades in various stages of realization and in multiple scales. In Moscow this reference-system serves as a specifically developed language that is turned into a build environment – A constructed reality. High-endish, UV-print, laser-cuted acrylic elements produced in Berlin are placed in a mock-up environment, that echoes temporary building experiments and stage-designs of the early 1920′s Soviet avant-garde. Local materials where individually chosen by Lukas. A specific complex measurement-system developed and domestic workers using their technics employed for construction. In the process, aesthetics is shaped by local influences. A specific atmosphere created by circumstances, dependencies and errors.Dom na Prospekte was created as a site-specific installation especially for the main venue, the Central House of Artists in Moscow. “Dom” was the largest piece of the show.
