The Triumph Gallery and the Tsar’s Tower Gallery present the Russia Station exhibition. The project was presented in the Russia Pavilion at the 16th Venice International Architecture Biennale in 2018 and is related to the theme “Free Space” (curated by the curators of the biennale), which is of particular importance for Russia. Questions of space, its comprehension and development are fundamental issues of Russian life. Russia is inhabited where the railway passes. The railway served and will for a long time serve as a tool to conquer the vast Russian space.
The project is called “Rossiya Station” because it is dedicated to the past, present and future of Russian railway stations. Particular attention will be paid to sound installations and multimedia. Stations have huge potential, and the territories around them are today and will be tomorrow the only free space of megacities.
The exhibition consists of five sections, each of which will be assigned a part of the exhibition:
In the “INTRODUCTION TO GEOGRAPHY” section, a video will be presented (Tanatos Banionis, 21 ’), telling about the size of the country, about the growing cities and the circulatory system of railways - about traffic, passenger traffic, about stations - starting from the Pavlovsky “voxal”, where music concerts, “a pleasant stay and reasonable entertainment in the bosom of beautiful nature” to train stations implemented in a complex urban environment.
The second section, entitled “PROJECT DEPOT”, presents projects, old and modern photographs with stations and passengers, footage from surveillance cameras. The central place will be taken by the model of the first Pavlovsky station (Liteynaya Part-91 (R. Dayanov). The same section presents the model of the station in the Olympic Park in Sochi (Studio 44, N. Yavein), drawings and objects of the architect N. Shumakov (Metrogiprotrans ) dedicated to the HSR Moscow - Kazan.
The third section, “HALL OF EXPECTATION FOR THE FUTURE,” will include a modern proposal for the development of the area of three stations in Moscow (Citizens / Citizenstudio (M. Beilin, D. Nikishin), Studio 911 (V. Krylov, A. Churzin, I. Assorov). Artist Anatoly Akue will perform mural specially for the exhibition.
In the fourth section - "STORAGE CAMERA", on both sides filled with cells with artifacts and installation of forgotten / lost suitcases. And finally, in the last fifth section, “Bridging Free Space”, in a large frozen window simulating a wagon, the film “Seven Days in Seven Minutes” (7 ’) is shown, shot by a young Moscow director (Daniil Zinchenko), who set off on a journey across the country to meet with my grandfather living in Vladivostok.
