Iles Tataev, a man from Grozny, Chechnya, has a gallery house where he exhibits his unique sculptures from … knurr.
Iles has been working in genre and documentary filmmaking for thirty years and sculpturing was just a hobby. But when he came to Moscow in 1996 his hobby turned into profession and in 1999 the first big exhibition of Iles was opened.
This is a gallery of Iles Tataev. It has shop in the basement, the interior is rather cosy but still plain.
Making a sculpture like this takes several months or even years. The most complicated thing is to find proper wood. The master seeks for materials throughout all the Caucasus.
This is the shop where Iles works.
The master receives offers to show his works in various countries. But he can’t accept them due to some financial problems.
