The students of the Kamenkovich-Krymov experimental course (GITIS) will present their works as artists on the START site of the CIC Winzavod on December 12. Within the group exhibition "Image of the enemy" the participants use the methods of modern theatrical and visual art.
Ten students of the Kamenkovich-Krymov course became participants of the "START" project following the series of portfolio revues conducted by the Winery in 2017. Meetings of experts with students of art and creative universities give novice artists a chance to realize their project in one of the leading cultural institutions of the country.
The group exhibition at the "START" site unites works in different media in one space: video, objects, installations, painting and others. The subject of the reflection of artists is the image of the enemy, comprehended through ten personal stories. The works created especially for the exhibition are devoted to the study of global problems of the younger generation - unresolved childhood fears, obsessive thoughts about total surveillance and terror, an attempt to understand the definition of the term "enemy" in the context of actual reality.
Curator of the START project of the CIN WINZAVOD season 2017/2018 Vera Trachtenberg: "Young people born in the 1990s do not understand and do not know the" enemies "of the past, but the echoes of the fears of older generations are alarming. This becomes evident now, when our primitive fears and ideas about the enemy as something other, unknown and therefore dangerous reach the limit. The exhibition Image of the Enemy is not a politicized story, but an experiment-study in which ten students position the enemy as a family drama, an internal conflict, the eternal problem of fathers and children, a threat to security from the past, violation of the right to privacy and other topical "fears" modern world. Artists choose a variety of media, producing statements in the format of "new sincerity", which is characterized by a special perception of the world, sensuality and openness. "
Participants of the exhibition: Grigory Rakhmilovich, Evgenia Rzheznikova, Anna Itkina, Olga Sizoy, Alexandra Dykhne, Maria Plavinskaya, Elizaveta Guseva, Anna Grebennikova, Varvara Ivanik, Katerina Shargina.
The exhibition "Image of the enemy" works until January 14, 2018, admission is free.
