Other Spaces. Artists' Studios Through the Lens of Georgy Kiesewalter
December 9, 2021 - February 27, 2022

The show features one-of-a-kind photographs of studios made by Georgy Kiesewalter in the 1970s and 1980s. Captured in his pictures are the interiors of the studios; episodes of the creative process; completed works, many of which are now part of collections across the globe; openings of unauthorized exhibitions; parties and get-togethers, that is, all the small details that help viewers get a glimpse of the bygone era and experience its ambience. Logically enough, the pictures are exhibited next to works that were created by the artists in those studios.

An artist's studio, which is permeated with their creative energy, should be viewed as one of their works and, as such, analyzed with its context in mind. For a studio, its geography is what shapes the context. This is why the photos of studios on display at the exhibition come with information about the history and cultural background of the districts, streets and buildings where they were located. The show gives visitors an opportunity to embark on a tour of these long-gone heterotopias in the city, whose spaces eventually transcended their original confines to become a significant part of our modernity.

Oleg Tselkov: la liberté du prisonnier

La Dame de Pique / June 30, 2014

«Prisonnier.» C'est le mot qu'Oleg Tselkov emploie pour parler du rapport à son art. Il se sent prisonnier dans sa création. Et ce constat, il le fait tout sourire. C'est un prisonnier heureux, accompli, libre. Cette prison, il a commencé à la bâtir lui-même en 1960 lorsque le premier de ses personnages s'est invité dans son œuvre, pour très vite ne plus laisser place à d'autres thèmes, à d'autres inspirations, à quelque intrus que ce soit. Aujourd'hui, il n'a plus vraiment le choix. Inlassablement, il peint ces étranges figures...
