In the gallery “On Kashirka” of the “Exhibition Halls of Moscow” Association, 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, which went through overcoming pain, mutual influence and finding oneself in creativity. Using drawing, Vladimir helped his son defeat the disease, and, literally, get on his feet. This personal shock opened Vladimir the way to painting an incredible emotional range: his paintings are gentle, almost weightless, but also very tough and evil. And Nikita formed a pantheon of constant heroes, including Don Quixote, characters of the Gospel and fantastic creatures, which became sharp metaphors of his battle with pain.
Vladimir and Nikita exhibited together more than once. But for the first time, their works will be accompanied by excerpts from Vladimir’s diaries, presented in separate objects, which he kept since the late 80s, not missing a day and accompanying every verbal description with a sketch.
The exhibition covers the 30-year period of the work of Vladimir Kurdyukov, and is the first large-scale exhibition after his death.
