The architectural drawings, the “whims”, the happy fantasies of Sergei Tchoban, portray urban landscapes in which Piranesi meets suspended architectures overlaid as stylistic and temporal additions to historical city settings.

The ten sculptures in walnut wood, as well as the drawings on paper, all works created in 2017, tell the same number of worlds, as many forms.
