The Design of Landscape Sentiments exhibition showcases the master’s unusual works. As the Charge d’Affaires Ad Interim of Israel to Belarus, Zvi Cohen-Litant, noted at the opening ceremony, the event opens an exhibition season by the Israeli Cultural Centre at the Embassy of Israel in Belarus. He added that Mr. Sergeyev — born in Belarus — is one of the leading sculptors and designers in Israel. In 1996, he opened a studio of landscape design in Jerusalem, creating small and large sized sculptures.
Mr. Sergeyev’s multi-coloured pieces are made from metal, concrete and mosaics, perfectly suiting their surroundings and complementing nature, while introducing a romantic mood into urban living. His grasshoppers, lizards, starfish, snails and lions, which are almost brought alive by his dazzling mosaics and mirrored glass, are to be found all over Israel. Each has its own character, able to move in light and shadow.
This is the first exhibition hosted by Minsk’s City History Museum, with the exhibits on show in the courtyard. This exclusive gallery is now wonderfully decorated.
