Birds Flying Inside the Head

The Moscow Museum of Modern Art is celebrating its 20th birthday and displays exhibits from collections of different years. Art curator of the exhibition Diana Dzhangveladze tells about the highlights to focus on.

The Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the exhibition ‘MMOMA 99/19' held on the occasion. Three floors of the mansion on Petrovka now house 20 themed venues created by star art curators displaying exhibits from collections of different years. The exhibition reflects their perspectives both on the Museum's holdings and on contemporary art in particular.
Read in collaborative article by mos.ru and Mosgortur Agency about the exhibition's highlights.

Visiting pages of the past with Oleg Voskoboinikov

The medievalist and translator Oleg Voskoboinikov dedicated his venue to the dialogue of contemporary and medieval art.
'I asked my museum colleagues to choose something medieval from the holdings, but with a modern twist. I think that the image of a person in art is a decent topic to discuss together and to address the audience with. At the same time, I wanted to make a traveller stop in the middle of the display and tell him: 'Think for a while'. I believe that this spot is a place to rest, have a break,' he says.
There are just a few exhibits in the History Hall, with 'Composition with a Shovel' by Andrei Grositsky being one of its highlights. Voskoboinikov invites visitors to focus on the shovel. The curator points that work has become both a curse and a blessing for humankind, its fate, and a metaphor for the earthly path.
'When I took a look at the photo of this picture, I realised that the shovel can tell the viewer a lot, and put him or her on a better footing. There is also some optimistic flavour in this work — though it is a vintage shovel with a broken handle, it looks reliable, it gives a sense of safety,' he said.
The paintings 'Birds Flying Inside the Head' by Leonid Tishkov, 'Little Witch' by Mikhail Grobman, 'War' by Boris Anisfeld, 'Selfportrait' by Dmitry Prigov, and Komar and Melamid's urban angels diptych elaborate on man’s earthly journey. The work embodies the curator's idea that 'We are born to shovel, but at the end we return to heaven'.

Drafty House

Drafty House. 2018.
Installation: carpets, fans, lamp, news paper, motion detector.

Carpets, apparently ordinary, were hanging in Ossetian, Ingush and Russian houses. Houses with high strong walls, on the slopes of mountains, under a high sky. It seemed that nothing was stronger than a home, in which was safe and warm. But disasters break to people "from behind the carpet". This is our common home, because you can not destroy someone else's house without destroying your own.

The Moon in Setouchi


The Moon of Hitomaro. 2019. Old boat, metal, arcrylic glass, LED. Setouchi Triennale from 26th April. Shamijima, Sakeido, Seto Inland Sea, Japan. 

In imagination, the one who is already gone begin to live in the landscape. We miss the expanse and the infinity of a field. The school was abandoned and become alone. As bookshelf was. The voices of children were hidden between the pages of books, however the books flew away following heron. Now, instead of books, there are the Moon and the Sun floating above the salt hill in the empty book shelves. A bit of bitter salt remains, and there are waves of sky blue and white. The shape of one human being goes crossing the wilderness. At the unmanned shore, unmanned boat is awaiting him. Look, the sailboat of the moon is shining above that.

In the sea of heaven

Cloud waves rise and the moon boat sails

Into a forest of stars,

Then is seen no more

La Lune privee a Grand Palais







The 50-year anniversary of the first human step on the Moon is an opportunity to study, present and celebrate the long history that links humans with this familiar celestial body, through the artworks and objects that embody the countless visions and emotions it has inspired. This five-part exhibition is a journey to the Moon, through dimensions both real and imaginary. Each stage takes visitors on a voyage through time, revealing artistic creations from Antiquity to the modern day, produced mainly in Europe but also by African, Arab and Far Eastern civilisations.

Space Flight





https://iz.ru/828220/sergei-uvarov/komicheskii-reis-rosizo-osmyslilo-khudozhestvennye-predely-gravitatcii

The central figure of the project is Tishkov himself. The space is organized precisely by his works - the “Ion Sun” (2006) hanging from the ceiling, whose rays are made of macaroni, the “Knitted rocket for space travel” (2011), the huge ball “The Return of Jupiter” (2018), referring to Kazimir Malevich’s idea of future on a distant planet. By itself, this object is devoid of artistic and reminds, rather, an exhibit of the planetarium. But here it is located above another installation - “Sugar Architectones” (2010), and this combination is impressive.
