In Dante Veritas
A reverberation of Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy, Klyukin explores themes of human vice and sin, Good and Evil, and reimagines Dante’s Inferno as an environmental collapse – the final consequence for our sin and non-action.
The collection is comprised of over 100 multimedia elements including sculpture, installation, digital art, audio and light boxes.
Working in a larger scale, Klyukin gives new names to the The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse: Overpopulation, Misinformation, Extermitation and Pollution. At 3.5 meters high, these works raise important issues and are reflective of today’s global issues, ushering classical tropes into the modern era.
