Roman Road is very pleased to present China is #myreality, a solo exhibition by Harry Nuriev in collaboration with Crosby Studios. Known for his refreshingly functional and bold monochromatic projects, Nuriev is a Brooklyn-based designer and architect whose unique sculptural pieces are at the intersection between art, design and kitsch. Together with his team at Crosby Studios, Nuriev creates furnishings and sculptures that each employ one unconventional colour, an idiosyncratic palette of shades such as electric blue or millennial pink, often inspired and influenced by his everyday reality. 

China is #myreality is a new installation by Nuriev featuring a collection of photographs taken during his recent trip to China. Connected to each image is a sidebar of its colour coding, showing the individual colours and the complete and proportional palette extracted from the picture. When Nuriev commences a new project, he usually starts with colour inspirations. His encounters of everyday scenes and objects and the ways in which people put things together without logic generates motivating content for Nuriev’ research. His idea of inspiration is to find an unusual way to illuminate the unique and random situations of day-to-day human life. 

With his new installation, Nuriev sheds light on the beginnings of his creative process. Through such means as deconstructing the palettes of his own photographs to determine a prevailing colour, he envisions and embarks on new projects that at once explore the potentials of different materials and combinations, for example working with powder coated galvanised metal and acrylic. His experimental approaches to creating have led to his practice developing into more artistic and conceptual ventures; among other exhibitions and art fair presentations, Nuriev recently had his first institutional solo exhibition 6 Fears at Dallas Contemporary, Texas. 

China is #myreality is an exhibition by Roman Road, London, in collaboration with Crosby Studios and is generously sponsored by The Design Release. The exhibition is on display from 17 – 22 September and coincides with London Design Festival 2018. 

Artist ( Description ): 

Harry Nuriev (b. 1984, Stavropol) is a Russian architect and designer, currently based between Moscow and New York. In 2014 he founded Crosby Studios, an interior design and architecture firm specialisingin creating functional furniture and sculptures that blur the distinction between art and design. Known for his minimalist approach, creative use of materials and bold monochrome, the firm is renowned for its ability to blend tradition with millennial sensibilities, creating unique pieces inspired by Russian crafts and classical Roman architecture, geometric primaries and Japanese modernism, and kitsch culture. Nuriev has recently expanded his practice beyond interior design and architecture into art, debuting new first conceptual series of sculptural works at Design Miami in December 2017. He has since exhibited his works at international fairs, including Frieze New York, Sight Unseen OFFSITE and Collective Design; collaborated with OMA for an outdoor art installation for and& summit and festival in Leuven, Belgium; and recently presented his first institutional solo exhibition 6 Fears at Dallas Contemporary.
