Twenty new paintings made in the original author's technique will be integrated with the totally modified space of the gallery. The artist refuses to be represented in the classical «white cube» and sets the exact trajectory for a viewer, who is now faced with limitations and a new visual experience of the painting. In this project Novikov notes the unstable position of art, the uncertainty of working capacity and the severity of statements. The author raises the question of the dialogue between an artist and a viewer which cannot take place today: is banned or excluded from the contemporary agenda. The exposition is made to show the state of banned art and the absence of the possibility for a word or artistic image to be revealed.
Venue: pop/off/art gallery (Moscow)
