On August 28, at 16:00, the Nagornaya Gallery starts the exhibition “MEETINGS ABROAD. AUSTRIA & RUSSIA ”, which is a continuation of the project of the same name, initiated by the Austrian curator Helmut Hodlmozer in the fall of 2015 in the city of Leonding.
In Russia, the exhibition is represented by Kira Matissen, Helmut Hodlmozer, Leonid Theodor, Larisa Bolshakova under the supervision of Leonid Theodor. They, completely different in style, with their own special pictorial language, recognizable in handwriting, are united by a common desire to speak the understandable language of visual art about their love for the natural world, man and the universe (space). Artists explores the problems of interaction, the inconsistencies of the new time, where one person, or people, or civilization cannot understand and accept a different lifestyle, different understanding and mentality, in the context of the interconnectedness of two cultures (Russia sv Austria) through a variety of artistic practices.
The project shows that the world is the same for all the inhabitants of the planet, despite political differences, cultural traditions and the psychophysiological characteristics of nations, subjects, individuals. Through art - creativity, a dialogue of cultures and mutual understanding begins and continues.
The exhibition presents objects, media projections, painting, art objects, installations, sculpture, assemblies.
Curator of the exhibition in Moscow Leonid Theodor: “For many years (from 1997-1998, my first acquaintance with H. Hodlmozer), personally getting to know and comprehending Western culture and art, I often felt working side by side with Helmut, and observed some general patterns of development of our work. Helmut calls the direction of his work “Fractal Art”, and I my “Structural Art”. But if you look closely at what we each came to on our own and together, there is something in common that characterizes contemporary art. Each artist accumulates all the discoveries of past centuries and millennia, and in particular of the last twentieth century, passing through himself, keeping in his soul that which is closest to each individual. For Hodlmozer, this is probably the Vienna Secession, German expressionism and an attempt to test Harmony Algebra. Hence the appeal to the scientific Fractal hypothesis. For me, he came to creativity through the deep development of Russian and European culture and art, where the Old Russian art, the Russian and European avant-garde, and an attempt to come to the synthesis of arts were fundamental. And Structuralism, as a way of identifying an image in an object, having its own impulse from nature, but not necessarily imitating nature, but revealing structures that allow you to create according to the same laws as God and Mother Nature does. Here, in my opinion, with the difference in results, there is a similarity in positions. ”
