Un Sedicesimo 5
Artdirector at Zunge Design Studio (Moscow), Protey Temen designed a Sedicesimo crowded with deflagrating graphics, inspired by commercial kiddy-styled layouts to examine the “symbiosis of tasks and feelings” among image consumers.
Protey Temen (1984) uses different media such as video, drawing, books and installations to create visual abstractions in his field of research involving art, handwriting and design to explore and make clear the intersections between science and everyday life, through a poetic approach.
He founded and manages the Inner School of Open Studies, a multidisciplinary art project presented at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2017. At the same time, he developed a theoretical research that led him to found various artistic movements such as Dobrotarism (2007) and Surritualism (2014).
Temen has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale (2011) in the Internet Pavilion, The Cave of Generosity solo exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (2014), the European Biennial of Modern Art Manifesta 10 (2014) and the International biennial of digital art The Wrong (2017/2018).
