TEXT-CONTEXT

Artefacts of 1968 – 2015 in the halls of «CASTS COLLECTION»
of the Museum of the Academy of Arts of Russia,
Saint-Petersburg, Universitetskaya emb., 17


25.05.17 - 27.08.17

OPENING 25 May, 18.00


The exposition is an expressive combination of contemporary art and antique artworks’ copies, of developed classics, of live experiment and esthetic canon, of authentic and copy.

The configuration is bold, to say the least: here we have replicas of celebrated heads, busts and full figures, prescriptions of hallowed values which are considered to be timeless and an intrinsic component of Western civilization. These values, expressed in dramatic gesture and serious mien and embodied in the three dimensions of marble and bronze, often bear the emblems of power and majesty which tally with a long established system of technical, esthetic and social criteria.

On the other hand, the photographic images of the Artefacts with their abstract structures, distributed among the lapidary tributes to Greece and Rome challenge, but also complement, the homage to order and measure. Their abstract structures set in landscapes of sun, water and snow elicit the dimensions of nature, ecology and the cycle of life so lacking in the still and studied poses of the Classical display.
