SAMPLE starts a collaboration with Peak!

Peak is a project about fashion, sports and culture with which we share values.  Now there is a SAMPLE pop up in their space on Petrovsky boulevard.  Here you can find series of Roma Bantik, Katia Luybavskaya and Erika Kristofersson Bredberg’s objects. 

The artists featured at SAMPLE pop-up are connected by a desire to rethink traditional artistic practices – whether it’s painting, glassblowing, or an approach to design.

o_ojj.1001 is a series of small objects by Roma Bantik created exclusively for SAMPLE. Painting with metal, the signature moulding technique in which Roma creates his works, is a way to give a second birth to aluminium scraps (discarded engines, engines, even parts of tanks) and to make traditional painting waste-free. The solidified drops of molten metal can also be used as an accessory – for example, by clipping it onto a hook or as a pin, as Roma himself does.

Katia Lubavskaya’s Design Zero series is a statement about contemporary design. The artist encourages us to «brush away the karma of intrusive visual images and look at design in its absence». The project is a bit ironic: after all, zero has form and transparent is almost a colour. 

Erika Kristoffersson Bredberg’s work is inspired by her childhood – the artist was first introduced to art through her mother’s vinyl record covers and her father’s comic book collection. The artist strives to move away from the traditional approach to glass making and to establish a direct contact with the viewer through her work, turning to humour and satire as a universal language. One can find oneself in the characters created by Erica – sometimes a little shabby, but with a smile on one’s face. 

The artworks are displayed and available for purchase at the Peak Store at 8/1 Petrovsky boulevard.
