Labyrinth is a project inspired by widely unknown artistic tradition of European proto-Avant-garde. It uses artistic strategies as a ‘tools’ to retell the official history of art and create unusual discourse, which connects the sources of early modern abstract art and the secret language of alchemic and mystic movements. The idea of the project is mainly based on historical research. Artifacts of ancient art appears as a props in the visual narration (as a book and a film), focused on the sophisticated ritual of quasi-religious organisation (similar to Masonic Lodge), taking place in the garden, which is a 3-dimensional map of European proto-Avant-garde.
