The famous metropolitan artist Marina Zvyagintseva will present the “CARTogram” installation as part of the “Cardboard Night” festival at the Tula Historical and Architectural Museum (TIAM) on June 16, 2018.
The new project Zvyagintseva develops the artist’s traditional idea of introducing contemporary art into the space of the city, which is not associatively associated with the concepts of “contemporary” and “public art”. This is a kind of cultural provocation, an attempt to force any viewer, even completely not guided by the cartography of modern art, to get used to public art objects in the familiar space of the museum courtyard, to accept them as an integral part of the city landscape.
The space of the museum yard of TIAM interested the leader of domestic public art Marina Zvyagintseva as a platform for the next experiment. The museum is located on one of the main streets, at the intersection of tourist routes, and in addition to the historical part of the exhibition, it plans to develop areas related to contemporary art. The history of one of the museum buildings is very remarkable. It is located in the so-called. Belyavsky House, built in the 1880s specifically for the pharmacy. It was the pharmacy that was located there until 2011, having survived many events of the 20th century. Then the building was given to the museum, and the history of the place was preserved in the part of the exposition dedicated to the pharmacy. Thus, over the twenty years of its existence, the museum has become an archive of memories of the city.
In the new installation “CARTogram”, the key issue of the majority of Marina Zvyagintseva’s art and curatorial projects - the relationship between art and the city, is localized to the theme “Museum and the city”. “The city of Tula is a living organism, in which the tourist part occupies no more than 30%, and 70% is ordinary city life. These 70% require development, and the museum is trying to pour its cultural component into the city, ”says Zvyagintseva.
On an old brick wall, the artist depicts a “MAP” - a schematic and figurative profile of the city from his “proprietary” material - PVC pipes.
The image of the interaction of the museum and the city is expressed in a dropper, which metaphorically pours “fresh blood” into the city. The dropper is installed at a height of 5 meters and emphasizes the history of the place - the territory of the former pharmacy. From the dropper, a stream of light runs through the pipes, which permeates and illuminates the city.
The “CARTogram” project reveals the cultural code of this place and creates a new point of attraction on the map of Tula.
