In the gallery “On Kashirke” of the Association “Exhibition Halls of Moscow”, the Russian Abstract Art Foundation presents the exhibition “Freedom. Survival. Interaction".
The name of the exhibition embodies the essence of the life path of Vladimir and Nikita, who went through overcoming pain, mutual influence and finding himself in the works. Using drawing, Vladimir helped his son defeat the disease, and, literally, get back on its feet. This personal shock opened Vladimir the way to painting an incredible emotional range: his paintings are tender, almost weightless, but also very tough and evil. And Nikita formed a pantheon of regular heroes, including Don Quixote, characters of the Gospel and fantastic creatures, which became the sharp metaphors of his battle with pain.
Vladimir and Nikita more than once exhibited together. But for the first time, their works will be accompanied by excerpts from Vladimir’s diaries presented as separate objects, which he has been conducting since the late 80s, without missing a single day and accompanying each verbal description with a sketch.
The exhibition covers the 30-year period of creativity of Vladimir Kurdyukov, and is the first large-scale expositions after his death.
