Working on the fringes of any given discipline, the point of departure for the recent works of Lev Kazachenko has been the imagined fusion of the paranormal and the Gestalt. The eventual pieces are intended to be instruments with a clandestine and esoteric purpose. Whether ambiguous or cryptic, each of them is charged, forming a cluster of meanings and wishes. Simultaneously, a utopian proposition toward art emerges.
