Our life consists of drifting moments. Pchelin’s sculptures appear to be constantly on the move, which is why they all are called ‘drifters’. They drift from chaos to synthesis as it is the only evolutionary way possible. The viewer encounters ‘drifters’ being assembled, at different stages of transition from their particle-nature to unity, the sum.

‘I am trying to tell with my sculptures that there is someone or something important that exists in a higher-dimensional reality, compared to us, people. I mean a kind of force that has no connection to humans. I believe a person has no influence on it but can easily encounter it’, says Valery Pchelin.

Pchelin’s art-works remind of conventional bio-forms. Organic features of his objects hold a message that these are all living things, pure particles of vital world, rather than pieces of anthropogenic creation. His works are ambiguously attractive; they draw and repel at the same time, and create a certain tension as if posing a fatal threat.

Meanwhile, only the ‘Great Drifter’ shows the destination declaring integrity and self-sufficiency as its primal features, appealing to perfection and wholesomeness of the being itself.
