Installation Art
Installation art came to prominence in the 1970s.
It describes an artistic genre of site-specific, three-dimensional works designed to transform a viewer's perception of a space.
Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces.Installation art can be either temporary or permanent.
Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.
The genre incorporates a very broad range of everyday and natural materials, which are often chosen for their evocative qualities. Ilya Kabakov
He was born in Dnepropetrovsk, Soviet Union (now Ukraine), in 1933.
He studied at the VA Surikov State Art Institute in Moscow.
In the late 1950’s he began his career as a children's book illustrator.
He worked for thirty years in Moscow, from the 1950s until the late 1980s.
Between 1970-1980 he was part of a group of Conceptual artists in Moscow who worked outside the official Soviet art system.
In 1985 he received his first solo show exhibition at Dina Vierny Gallery, Paris. Content Biography of Ilya Kabakov The Man Who Flew From His Apartment Into Space 1984 Ten Characters “Ten characters” correspond to the ten people in each room of the apartment.
The huge environment is organized around a large ceiling from which hang many pots while some tables are flat on the floor.
Kabakov here summarizes disputes, threats, affectionate gestures and banal observations that are juxtaposed in an ironic way the complexity of life in the USSR and in a shared house.

The Man Who Never Threw Anything Away 1985-88 What is the Total Installation Ilya Kabakov and how does it reflect in the Soviet Union? History of Installation Art What is Total Installation? Discussion of art works - 'Ten Characters', 1988 - 'The Man Who Flew From His Apartment Into Space', 1984 - 'The Man Who Never Threw Anything Away, 1985-88 - 'The Palace of Projects', 1998 Continued Biography In 1987 he moved to the West, taking up a six months residency at Kunstverein Graz, Austria and then in USA.
In 1988 Kabakov began working with his future wife Emilia.
In 1992 they married and they moved to New York.
From this point onwards, all their work was collaborative. Total Installation In the eighties Ilya Kabakov began to use the term "total installation".
The idea of "total installation" referred to the ability of a work of art to transform completely the exhibition space.
In 1988, he recovered works and pictorial works which he himself made in the sixties and seventies and he created a single work on installation.
The Red Wagon, first shown in Düsseldorf in 1991, took on new meanings when it was reconstructed in the Garage in Moscow this year.
The Man Who Flew From His Apartment Into Space 1984 Total Installation Continued In Kabakov’s Total Installation was kept the pictorial dimension, but this was returned in three-dimensional space.
The installation conceived in this way also acquired a strong narrative structure, it becomes like a plastic component that it can changed according to the wishes of the artists.
A particular role was reserved to the audience and the interaction between the audience and the work becames even crucial to the success of the work.
