The collection of the Tretyakov Gallery presents Koleichuk's objects, which are true plastic masterpieces of the author: "Mast", "Standing thread", "Cube instantly rigid", "Spheres". Among them is the work "Living Line", created by the artist in 1981. It is a rotating brass tube that literally comes to life before the eyes of the viewer, overcoming the inertia of material and form. This simple yet incredibly expressive kinetic sculpture gives its name to the exhibition.
Vyacheslav Fomich Koleichuk (1941–2018) is one of the pioneers of kinetic art in Russia. The creator of self-stressed and "self-erecting" structures, cable-stayed rod structures, impossible figures and self-collages, line stereographies and light shaping installations, sounding objects and "gravity" for the film "Kin-dza-dza!" at the junction of different types of arts. At the age of 26, he realized one of his most daring projects - a 13-meter rotating and sounding "Atom".
