EXHIBITION "AMALGAMA"

Exhibition
6 March - 17 April, 2018

About the event

The group "AI" shows the opposite movement - from the mirror to the glass.

The project consists of painting, video and object, united by obsessive fragmentation, understatement and mystery. The viewer is shown something looks like a part of reality. But how far is this reality finite and objective, and in all, is it a reality?

The center of the exhibition is a mirror. In fact, a mirror is a glass on which a reflecting amalgam emulsion is applied, which changes the properties of an object. Instead of a clear, translucent world, it becomes a reflective tool that repeats reality.

The group "AI" shows the opposite movement - from the mirror to the glass. The stage of disappearance of amalgam from the surface of glass is demonstrated in the meditative video and in the main object of the exposition, where half-erased mirrors with the destroyed amalgam are contrasted with the holistic.

The metaphor of transformation and deconstruction of the mirror refers to the idea of ​​the surface, as the boundary separating one reality from another. The surface of the mirror deceptively demonstrates the face of reality, in fact, very distorted (inverted). The surface of the painting acts as an exact document of the artist’s consciousness, but in the case of the “AI” Group, it reflects a rather dim memory, devoid of any specifics.
