EXHIBITION OF ACTUAL ART “RHYTHM. MOTION. DYNAMICS”
On May 26-28, an interactive art-weekend of the ARTIS PROJECT “Rhythm. Motion. Dynamics” was held.
The motto of the art-weekend, which was visited by several hundred spectators, were the words of Albert Einstein: “Life is like driving a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must move”.
The opening of the event was held in a unique art-quest format, which was appreciated not only by modern art lovers who visited it, but also by art business professionals. It was possible to complete “the quests” of the quest only after passing through the entire space of the exposition, without forgetting to glance at the same time even in the mysterious corner under the stairs and the famous “Salt Cellar”.
At the exhibition, curated by ARTIS Art historian Anna Smirnova, the solution to one of the most difficult and interesting tasks for visual art – capturing the movement – was presented by nine artists working with various mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, installation. On the day of the opening of the art-weekend some of the artists, along with guides, greeted the audience in the halls of the gallery to talk about their work and exhibited works. The bold experiments of young authors using the most original artistic techniques, from etching metal plates to painting with gold leaf and screen printing, filled the exhibition space with unexpected readings of the fundamental theme.
Especially for the new art-weekend of the ARTIS PROJECT, Slava PTRK, Anastasia Venkova, Anna Lysenko, Ivan and Svetlana Vorontsovy-Veliyaminovy and Viktor Polyakov prepared more than ten works, first presented to the public. According to the results of the Internet voting, the audience’s award went to Anastasia Venkova’s picture, and the prize from the ARTIS PROJECT went to Sergey Katran’s interactive installation “Sunflower Seeds”.
The special guests of the art weekend were the Dutch artist Jolanda Jansen, who presented her video art work and performance “Study of Paper”, as well as the ballet dancer of the Mariinsky Theater, the soloist of the Russian Ballet troupe Lera Zhuravleva and the champions of Russia in sports and ballroom dancing in Latin program Svyatoslav Gerasimov and Anastasia Zakharchuk, who presented to the audience dance canvases that turned into full-fledged objects of the exhibition.
All weekend, a free entrance was opened at the exhibition of the ARTIS PROJECT, and on Sunday, Tim Ilyasov gave a lecture titled “Fashion and Art. Interpenetration” in the large exhibition hall of the Galleries on Solyanka, in which students could learn how the works of avant-garde artists of the twentieth century were embodied in the works of famous fashion designers and how the fashion world and contemporary art influence each other’s development.
