FprBuro Communications Agency is proud to present Russian-born, London-based artist Natalia Kapchuk in the debut of her solo exhibition, The Lost Planet, successfully held from 15th-27th October 2021 at the Unit X art space in London. The exhibition showcased over thirty works utilizing various techniques ranging from mixed media assemblage to painted collage and sculptural reliefs. The installation also featured an animated video encapsulating the overall theme of the art series, demonstrating Kapchuk’s versatility as an artist. The ground floor of the exhibition evoked that of a dense tropical forest, bringing attention to the threats placed on these tropical habitats caused by climate change and human greed. Contrasting the space with elements of live vegetation and cultivated debris, the artist shows how such unsightly scenes have become the Earth’s “new normal.” Along with weather variations becoming increasingly prevalent across the globe, another focus of the exhibition was plastic pollution in the world’s oceans, contaminating sea waters and affecting all marine life.
Uniquely displaying her works, the artist showcases the pieces of The Lost Planet across two floors of the Unit X art space. The main level featured works dedicated to both the planet’s four main elements and the beauty of nature, alluding to its destruction brought upon by human activity. The second floor presents works that express the abuse perpetrated onto the world’s oceans and the carbon footprint inflicted by human civilizations everywhere, as demonstrated in her works The Winner Takes It All, Priceless Treasure, and The World Is On Fire.
