On May 21, at 4:00 pm, the opening of the Pulsation exhibition will take place in the Perm Art Gallery. The exhibition presents works of non-conformist art from the collection of the famous Moscow cardiac surgeon Mikhail Alshibaya (Moscow). The curator of the exhibition is Yulia Lebedeva (Moscow).
Mikhail M. Alshibaya (b. 1958) - Professor, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Head of the Department of Coronary Surgery of the Scientific Center for Cardiovascular Surgery. A.N. Bakulev RAMS.
In all his hypostases (doctor, scientist and collector), Mikhail Alshibaya is an experimenter. He began collecting works of Soviet non-conformists in 1986, quickly realizing how superficially studied this art, and soon expanded his range of interests and towards modernity. The collection of Mikhail Alshibaya is the author’s view of a period in the history of Russian art, half a century long. Today, his collection has several thousand works.
The exhibition will feature about sixty exhibits. Among them are not only the works of non-conformist artists, but also the works of representatives of modern (contemporary) art, as well as sketches of theatrical costumes of the 1920s and 1960s.
- Calling the project “Pulsations”, we wanted to reflect on the fact that art and collection is a living organism, filled with emotions, pulsating and beating like a heart. On the example of works created at different times, several parallel stories unfold at once - art, love of art and, of course, life itself.
Here - and the magic of images, and the magic of words, and the magic of numbers. The works in the exhibition seem to be “talking” with each other. We have probably built some seemingly strange but extremely interesting dialogues. Theatrical sketches have something in common with the pictures, in the plots of which there are elements of theatricality: for example, the watercolor of Dmitry Plavinsky “Venice” looks like a decoration, the subjects of painting by Andrey Demykin and Anatoly Slepyshev are like theatrical performances, and the illustrations by Viktor Pivovarov to the poems of Igor Kholin are like tragic masks.
Here you can find compositions from playing cards of Vladimir Nemukhin, flowers of Vladimir Yakovlev, portraits by Igor Voroshilov, Anatoly Zverev and Natalia Turnova, still lifes of Dmitry Krasnopevtsev, Mikhail Grobman, Eduard Steinberg and the newly discovered collector Natalia Kasatkina, disturbing city scenes, using the pencils to use it to keep the pencils that you can use to use it to change the color of the object using the same color to use it to change the color of the object to use the same color to use in the same color to use as the source for creating the same color to use for the day. Alexei Kamensky, Bella Levikova, Clara Golitsyna Vitas Stasyunas and the view from the “Window” by Mikhail Roginsky, the verbal games of Andrey Abramov, Yuri Albert, Sergey Volkov and Dm itria Gutova and much more.
A special theme in the collection and at the exhibition is “the affairs of the heart”: several heart images, including the collaboration of Maria Arendt and Mikhail Alshibaya himself “Cutting and sewing courses” - installation-performance, shown at the Tretyakov Gallery in 2012, when the cardiac surgeon left several special medical stitches on the artist’s works of fabric with embroidery depicting heart surgery.
- My collection is dedicated to the so-called non-conformist art - art, which in Soviet times was considered "anti-Soviet", and in fact sought to main, that is in human life and the life of art, - to freedom. The exhibition will show only a small fragment of my collection, but given that the art of theater is the main theme of the festival, we will present theatrical works of artists as an epigraph.
However, a kind of drama is inherent in easel and pictorial works. The clash of plastics defines this drama, but also a conceptual moment too. Life is a theater - the great playwrights of the past, Calderon and Shakespeare, said; life is a dream - they repeated the same. Theater and dreams, refracted in painting and pulsating - this is the main theme of this exhibition.
The exhibition will run until June 23, 2019.
