Bogdan Volynsky, Peaceful sky. Video installation, 2015.
Bogdan Volynsky offers to distract from the state of media war, endless online disputes, in which millions are participating today. The war fills the screens, and, imagining its end, I want the monitors and screens to turn blue, as if during a system reboot. The blue screen becomes a "peaceful sky" ...
- This time, the winners were determined by a new, international jury. All the artists whose works you see here at the Institute of Contemporary Art Problems are very young, young people. They make only the first steps in the profession - almost maternally rejoicing for the “muscling”, the gallery owner also stated. Fully mini-interviews look at the video: - In order to be able to speak, more and more young artists are turning to an international visual language. Use a media move that is clear on any platform of the planet. And, practically, they refuse from the traditional school, where they are educated here, in Ukraine, ...
To use the methods of the old school, you need a very large talent and experience. Very young artists participate in our competition. And, of course, they choose what will be more easily accepted by the same experts, ”says Marina Marina, the founder of the FLY contest. This is a view of the landscape that depicts the sea. Also, marines are concrete paintings or sea engravings. The word "marina" (ital. Marina) is derived from the Latin marinus - marine. Read more Shcherbenko.Yarina Shumskaya. Temporary calculations. Interactive installation. The artist is engaged in performance, installation, graphics, without limiting herself to a single format of self-expression. Her project “Time Calculations” is an interactive installation consisting of three parts: “Accounts”, “Dial”, “Dice Game”. Each piece is a game of sugar cubes. So, "Dice" is the artist's way to "turn to the absurd, in which we often find ourselves, losing time, chances, opportunities."Art group "Soup set" (Peter Vladimirov, Yevgeny Korolitov). Black Olympus. Installation. “On December 7, 2013, a group of Lugansk artists, musicians and photographers as part of the project“ Black Olympus ”carried out an expedition to one of the existing waste heaps, which is located near the city of Krasnodon, Lugansk region. The goal of the project was to create a media archive of documentation of individual experiences of interaction with the industrial environment. ” (From the annotation to the “Difficult Land” exhibition, which was held at the Small Gallery of the Mystetsky Arsenal in March-April of this year) In general, compared to previous years, in the projects of 10 nominees we were surprised by their extreme brevity: the “speculative” majority Ilya Kabakov himself would envy, and Odessa conceptualists could shed a tear. A little bit more - and, most likely, it would have been a matter of minimalist design, rather than installations. Fortunately, more familiar objects, from light to spatial installations, are still attracted to young people.Boris Slazhnev. Hidden aesthetics. Installation: graphite, metal, 2015. Installation Boris Slazhneva explores the relationship of the individual with the social system and examines the dissolution of individual qualities in common - social, - norms and values.
The volume part symbolizes the change of the human personality under the influence of external factors.
The graphic image embodies the blurring of the holistic image of a person in the modern world. Graphite on the wall - a kind of reference to the origins of art, rock paintings.
But in general, the expression of the composition, its graphic nature and dynamics should cause real, true emotions: excitement, alertness, interest. And in such a way, to open non-obvious sensory perception, “hidden aesthetics”.Andrei Sakun. Dream. Volume II: Reality or fiction, let's pretend that it does not exist. Artbook A3 format (paper, ink), lightboxes. The artist continues the project "Dreams" in the format of art-beech: if the first volume was devoted to the feeling of nostalgia for the Crimea as a lost dream, then the second is not tied to a specific event or territory.
“This is a visual story that consists of situations of everyday life, my experiences, thoughts and dreams. The patterns and patterns that define our solutions give us a feeling of comfort. This work is about how I tried to find points of support, to understand the surrounding reality. This is something very personal, and at the same time, collectivistic. ”Younger visitors of the exhibition, as we see, are interested in the ideas and thoughts of their peers - contemporaries. There is something to think about! And, however, we have written in vain about the “ambiguity” of the image of a fly. The best “youth” art competition in Ukraine is more suitable for an association not with Golding's anti-utopia novel The Lord of the Flies. I also remember the legend of Virgil. The great poet once forged a brass fly. And after the magical ritual he decorated the gates of Naples with her. The next eight years of living flies in Naples was not. So, Virgil-artist saved compatriots from many anxieties and diseases. The exhibition runs until December 5, 2015. Photo by reportage
