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.

Kirill Rubtsov, biography, selected works

The second exhibition of Kirill Rubtsov returns the author from the microcosm of his previous Library series to his more habitual atmosphere of Space.

For Rubtsov the theme of Space is so to say so paradigmatic and well developed in quantity and, of course, in quality. The Space of Rubtsov is imagined in what makes us who we are category and there is no limits in its endless stories variations.

The Space of Rubtsov is boundless and multiple in its Soviet scientific narrative and in foreign 3D comics style. It is absolutely hand-made and tactual. The author is far from trendy nowadays illusions and imitations. Everything is very simple and convincing as in childhood.

The principle accent of this endless story about Russian robot is presenting of the dynamic context of his adventures on unknown planets in mysterious universes.

Alexandra Mitlyanskaya, biography, selected works

Expedition is a visually and technically complicated project by Aleksandra Mitlianskaya. In the frames of one intention there are collected artworks of several years. Mainly there is monochrome paintings of 90s and video of 2014, reproducing cinema-sketches of modern Buryatia landscapes. Expedition is not a cold documental chronicle, not just a report on a journey. It is special view of reality, gazing mysterious being and a dialog with it. There is surprising simplicity and sense ofimportance of living process placed in short films. Optics of visuals is interesting by the feeling of the scene as a dream and at the same time as something experienced by the viewe.
