Nika Neelova‘s “The Night Also Falls” was one of the eye catchers of Volta7. This huge chandelier made out of burnt timber, charcoal and rope looked poetic and dramatic at the same time and – as we heard from Neelova’s dealer – the burning process took more than a month to complete.
Neelova, a young (*1987) Russian-born and Berlin-based artist, studied stage design in Moscow, sculpture in The Hague and at Slade School of Art London and is a definite rising star. She participated in “New Sensations” by Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4, her work has been shown in an impressive list of solo and group shows and her chandelier will now be part of the collection of Biedermann museum (who purchased it for 12.500 € during the art fair).
