of the Museum of the Academy of Arts of Russia, Saint-Petersburg
26.05 – 27.08 2017
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...

This project addresses a fundamental component of European culture: the Baroque era. Specifically it brings to the fore a cultural phenomenon that is not restricted by time or space or defined by categories of grand style, but is reflected in contemporary social and cultural processes. The events of today have a historical analogue: the Baroque era, with its inherent intonation and symptoms of planetary cataclysm, a rapid annihilation of the classical colonnade of international archetypes.
ARCHIVAL CONTEMPORANEITY project
The idea of this project - to show the Names with their past. To look into the archives of 80-ies - 90-ies and reconstruct that artistic atmosphere.
The actual theme of those times (painting) - the actual theme of today (photography, video, installations). . .
The idea of the Project is to widen the comprehension of contemporary art display and integration of this art into the frameworks of real social industrial sphere. In this case the sites of exposition shall be exhibition halls of technical equipment, engineering, structural engineering, metallurgical manufacture, agricultural sector and so on up to the trade fair of present-day armaments and space technologies.
