“Nikolay Polissky. Russian Antiquity” at GUM-Red-Line Gallery

GUM-Red-Line Gallery is proud to announce the opening of Russian Antiquity – the solo exhibition of Nikolay Polissky, founder of the Nikola-Lenivets Crafts and the Archstoyanie Festival, pioneer of Russian land art.

For the first time ever, the artist presents his new project Russian Antiquity based around hazel wood at GUM-Red-Line Gallery. The exhibition will also include documentary materials chronicling the media projects presented during the Archstoyanie Festival.

The exposition concept is linked to the syncretic link between two levels or layers that form the cultural landscape of Nikola-Lenivets. 1st layer. Terrestrial landscape – the primary level, the basis that is rooted in the creative genius of Nikolay Polissky and his group of rural worker-turned-artists that works with materials from the forests of Kaluga. The first layer is represented by wooden sculptures created by Nikola-Lenivets Crafts – Russian Antiquity. The series consists of various elements that reference ruined basic classical architecture forms. The Russian Antiquity series develops the tradition that formed in the first few years of Nikolay Polissky and his art team working in Nikola-Lenivets. Since 2000, the artists reinterpret architectural “brands”: in 2000, they created the Mesopotamian Ziggurat from hay; the Aqueduct from snow followed in 2001; the citadel-like Firewood Tower was built in 2002; the Mediatower dates back to 2003, etc. As Nikolay Polissky notes, “2020-2021 is the time to return to the very beginning, to find ample nourishment in antique art that set the principles and basics of all subsequent urban development.”

2nd layer. Celestial landscape – the immaterial, transcendent level, the layer of energy, creativity, and development that occur in Nikola-Lenivets: Archstoyanie Festival, New Media Night, Archstoyanie for Children, and many other events of various scope frequently just happen and do not leave any material trace or monuments. The second layer is represented by various media. The media projects of Archstoyanie include performance art pieces, video films, art projects that were documented over the 16 years of Archstoyanie.

Curator: Anton Kochurkin.

Producers: Julia Bychkova, Ivan Polissky.

Gallery is open daily, from 10:00 to 22:00! Entry is free.
