The Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art, as part of the Farewell to Eternal Youth anniversary cycle, opens a personal exhibition of Kandinsky Prize winner Dmitry Venkov. The exhibition will feature three videos and a series of photographs. All works are united by the theme of a revolution in history and art. The artist considers the coup as a historical event and as an artistic method.
The central video of the exhibition “Hymns of Muscovy” was created specially for the anniversary cycle of the Winery together with composer Alexander Manotskov. In the film, the architectural styles of Moscow are compared with variations on the anthem of the USSR and Russia. Three eras in architecture, three anthem variations.
Artist Dmitry Venkov: “Since we live in an inverted world, the task of the exhibition is to turn everything upside down: swap the first and last, upper and lower, heaven and earth, politics and aesthetics. Long live the great October Revolution! ”
Continues the theme of the coup video “Krisis” (other Greek. Rotary decision; court). A classic discussion film, a judicial drama in which participants, like the jury, try to assess the demolition of the monument to Lenin, but cannot come to a consensus. The film shows the moment when history is rapidly breaking into people’s lives.
The video “At another time” takes place in the underground palaces of the Moscow metro, where young people are peering intently at the walls, listening to sounds, and looking thoughtfully at nowhere. Dmitry Venkov catches a special course of time that flows in the subway.
In 2017, the Vinzavod Center for Contemporary Art, one of the first and largest private art centers in Russia, will turn ten years old. The main event of the anniversary year was the cycle “Farewell to Eternal Youth” - large-scale solo exhibitions of new generation artists, who are behind the future of contemporary Russian art. As part of the cycle, the exhibitions of Yegor Koshelev, Urban Fauna Lab (Alexey Buldakov and Anastasia Potemkina), Evgeny Granilshchikov, ZIP, Misha Most and Recycle Group have already been held. Ahead of the projects are Arseny Zhilyaev, Taus Makhacheva, Irina Korina and Polina Kanis.
Since the opening of the Winery, a generation of artists has formed that is still called young, although they have already won an audience and are actively involved not only in the Russian, but also in the global art process. We want to capture the transformation of artists from the definition of "young" to the status of "held."
Dmitry Venkov was born in 1980 in Novosibirsk. He graduated with honors from the Master of Oregon University with a degree in cinema history and the new media school named after A. Rodchenko. Member of numerous international exhibitions and festivals. Personal exhibitions: “There will be no more time” (Central Exhibition Hall “Manege”, Moscow, 2014), “Getting Together” (Triumph Gallery, Moscow, 2013). Winner of the Kandinsky Prize 2012 in the nomination “Young Artist” for the film “Crazy Imitators”, nominee for the Innovation Prize in 2012 and 2013.
Triumph Gallery was founded by Emelyan Zakharov and Dmitry Khankin in 2006. The gallery is engaged in contemporary art and represents more than forty major Russian and foreign artists. In addition to projects in its own space, Triumph oversees major exhibitions in Russia and abroad and supports young art. In 2013-2014, in conjunction with Manege / MediaArt-Lab, the gallery held exhibitions of young media artists as part of the Great Expectations project. In 2013, the gallery founded the Department of Research Arts, an interdisciplinary science and art project. Since 2015, together with the Triumph Museum of Modern Art, he has been curating the Young Lions program. In 2016, the gallery launched the EXTENSION cycle, which presents the contemporary art scene of different countries, showing exhibitions both in Moscow and in other cities of Russia.
