MY DAD AND THE MOVIES

By Julia Belomlinskaya

I love the 1960s.
I was born in sixties.
To two “Sixtiers”.
Except that, at the time, my mom and dad didn’t know that they were the “Sixtiers”.
The generation of yet another Russian thaw, this time in the Soviet Russia.
The generation that will also be known as “Children of the 20th Congress of Communist Party”.
The Sixtiers will be emblazoned and disparaged.
They will be the subject of heated arguments.
Bulat Okudzhava, who sided with the Sixtiers, will write a poem
about the Sixtiers who should dethrone the Mustached Man (Stalin).
The poem ends with the Sixtiers placing their bet on the motherland
that will certainly forget about them in all the bustle,
but then again they have but one motherland…

NATURE MORTE

“NATURE MORTE”

NATURE MORTE

An ordinary glass of water, viewed as the art object, provides an infinite field of possible interpretations.  The longer one looks at it, the father away the applied meaning moves, giving place to the aesthetic value and the form.  Reflections, overlappings, intermixtures, penetrations — the illusory nature of material world creates a certain new household poetics.  Apartment exhibitions facilitate the penetration of household things into art in the best possible way.  The apartment space cannot be transformed into the exhibition space in its entirety; characteristics of its inhabitants show through crystal chandeliers, curtains or wall’s color.  In this case, the artist, thanks to his unlimited power, endows household objects with an absolute freedom of self-determination, which is unthinkable in the real life, by arranging almost metaphysical still lives:  a chandelier drifts onto the wall; a flower grows through the floor.  He creates a sense of the absurdity of goings-on, disturbing the customary state of affairs and balancing on the border of art-not-art, as if engendering a special type of object that exists simultaneously on several terrains.

Astronomy of Feelings

BY: Elena Gubanova and Ivan Govorkov

At first glance, it might appear that astronomy and feelings are concepts that do not intersect.
Astronomy – it is distances, galaxies, stars; this is a mystery. However, a human being with his feelings, fears and doubts is no less of a mystery. Observation has always been the basis of astronomy. Observation has always been the activity of an artist. A mirror is one of the instruments used by a human being for self-determination, and the very same mirror has now become the chief instrument of astronomers. A human being looks in the mirror and sees himself and outer space. Read more »

Up to Twelfth Generation

Photography of Alexander Terebenin is much like archeology, and his strolls though the city are akin to expeditions – inconspicuous; with neither fuss nor pose. The extraction is carried out openly, without gold miners’ sweat, pioneers’ vehemence or scientists’ zeal. Roaming round and about, melancholically dwelling here and now, the artist retains the time that flowed here and then.
