The Wallace Collection, London

Work from the Glasstress collateral event at the 55th International La Biennale di Venezia (2013) travels to London College of Fashion and The Wallace Collection as part of a two-venue exhibition curated by James Putnam, a Senior Research Fellow at London College of Fashion. In a unique collaboration between the Berengo Studio, Venice Projects, London College of Fashion and the Wallace Collection, Glasstress: White Light | White Heat presents the newly commissioned work of some of today’s most important contemporary artists, most of whom worked in glass for the first time. At the anniversary 55th forum, Oksana Mas offers a new intellectual work “Quantum Prayer” which for the first time combines two independent materials – glass and metal. Red, blue, amber and white objects are the machine engines and underwent modifications with the beautiful, noble, unique Murano glass. The Venice exhibition saw sixty-five artists responding to the theme of light and heat, the components of fire, the fundamental elements involved in the formation of the universe and also the essence of glassblowing. Light is integral to our perception of glass, while heat is required to shape it.London venues and datesDecember 2013 –  February 2014The Wallace Collection, Hertford House, Manchester Square, London, W1U 3BN

Quantum Prayer by Oksana Mas was chosen as the main work of the exhibition White Lite/White Hit, the third edition of Glasstress at Venice Biennale.

Glasstress video

"The idea of my work and the title came from my current interest of studying the quantum physics. It became a sort of my hobby. Actually, everybody can see that today a lot of people  start to think differently.  And in this case, the Quantum Prayer, the word “prayer” does not refers to the religious meaning.  Rather, it’s talks to an all-pervading consciousness.  I was sure that crystal pure glass would show the scheme of purification and penetration in everything that exists so I gave it a title “Quantum Prayer”.

I think this work completely expressed my idea through these three materials:  aluminum, silica and glass.  The glass played the major role, when we started to pour it over the engine.  The glass began to fuse the engine and the engine dripped like water.

The same I observe in life.  When a person has pure thoughts, when he is honest with himself and with others, when he really lives in a positive stream of consciousness - there are no limits for him.  I think this is the philosophy of the third millennium as it is.  We all have to become better and think like there are no boundaries for us.

In my work, the glass won over the metal which was my concept.  It is a prayer, any prayer, true and honest - it penetrated and melted the metal.  Working with the glass represented an overcoming of material things.  That’s why I called my work Quantum Prayer.  It meant that I had to change myself to start to think in the glass."



The organizer of the project - Mironova International Art Group.  First Ukrainian company established to create the concepts and complex project management in the field of art.  With extensive contacts in the international cultural sector, Mironova International Art Group is ready to take on any project - from a protracted reorganization of urban history into modern art clusters, until the publication of catalogs of artists.



International Cultural Foundation UART became an official sponsor of the project.

UART's goal is to promote ukrainian art abroad improving countries' image, implementing its main mission - cultural diplomacy.  Foundation projects demonstrate the potential of the ukrainian artists, combining intellectual and creative efforts for the preservation and enhancement of the cultural heritage of Ukraine.

Exhibition 'Gestalt' - is an existential search.Exhibition guide, to achieve intrapersonal integrity, fullness and meaning of life. In German the word translated very simply. It means a way, shape, form. The word Gestalt has no exact equivalent in English and Russian. Very approximately, depending on the context, it is set to "organized whole"Oksana Mas constantly experimenting with ideas. The artist believes that the art of the future - is the art of thinking. The main task of the author - to allow the viewer to experience the aesthetic insights and expand thought processes. For this Mas finds own methods and combinations. As a conceptual artist she explores deep philosophical themes, offering new forms of creativity, by exploring the possibilities of the human soul and pushes the boundaries of reality. What in the world objectively and subjectively, that - that these questions puzzled artist.

Organizers: Fedorova Cultural Foundation and Change Performing Arts

Art is the attempt to mend a bereavement, the loss of completeness and the descent into a partial and fragmentary world. In this regard, creation is the development and healing process of the artist who uses form as the crystal-clear evidence of a newfound wholeness. The sphere is the emblem of a circularity that flows and brings together, as shown in the history of art, which, ever since the Middle Ages, has always combined reason with instinct, rationality with spirituality. For several years now, Oksana Mas has been working on reclaiming the sphere as a geometric shape holding within itself a principle of universal oneness. The artist starts from the krashenki Ukrainian folk custom: wooden eggs covered in traditional decorations celebrating Easter. She gave the eggs, incarnation of the sphere, to inmates in women’s penitentiaries, intellectuals and people working in various fields from forty-two different countries asking them to paint them.

The installation by the title Post-vs.-Proto-Renaissance presented at the Biennale di Venezia in the Pavilion of Ukraine is a section of the monumental work (m.92X134), composed by 3.640,000 wooden eggs. The iconographic reference is the work of the Van Eyck brothers, proto-Renaissance artists who painted "The gardens of paradise," which can be seen on an altar in the Flemish city of Ghent. The eggs form a veritable architecture whose structure evokes a mosaic in which the eggs’ iconographic tattoos constitute the single elements. Ancient and modern art merge into an image embracing stories of sins and dreams of redemption, hope in the future and a yearning for purity. Depending on the distance, the work breaks down as if it were a digital file of egg-pixels, each one representing the dramatic destiny of mankind. Contemplating the work of Oksana Mas is a form of initiation into a new life, a full life.
