Edition 5: Russia fly by
29.09.2006 – 12.11.2006
The exhibition particularly lays an eye uppon the three biggest cities of this vast country: Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk. Three curators were invited to choose artists from “their” cities to represent them properly.
“Russia fly by” is showing figurative painting from very diversified angles, in which the “fly” is a recurrent theme. Already in Ilya Kabakovs’ works flies recur as a symbol for sociopolitical and autobiographical processes.
Exhibited are works by: Marina Alexeeva (*1959), Sergey Bespamyatnykh (*1970), Sergey Denisov (*1963), Diana Machulina (*1981), Aleksander Pogorzhelskiy (*1980), Vitaly Pushnitskiy (*1967) and Dmitry Shorin (*1967).
