The Ulrich Museum of Art will host an artist talk with HYBYCOZO, a collaborative installation art collective made up of Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 1 in Woolsey Hall. Their sculpture, Stratosphere, was the most recent piece to join the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection in fall 2022. A reception is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
HYBYCOZO’s work consists of larger-than-life sculptures that celebrate the inherent beauty of geometric form and pattern, and compose them in ways that harmonize the experience of sculpture, light and shadow. Much of their work draws on inspirations from mathematics, science and patterns in nature and acknowledges diverse cultural influences in pattern making and design. They seek to create public art that creates a sense of place and invites wonder and curiosity, not only about the elemental geometric forms used to compose their sculptures, but also in the technological processes used to create them.
