Pandemic through the eyes of contemporary artists — in the new exhibition space of the park.
The exposition shows the global experiences that have arisen in connection with the pandemic. There is no surprise that the demonstration of works by Russian and foreign authors resembles Instagram feed: created in different techniques and genres, the works are adapted to giant screenshots three by three meters, forming an artistic chronicle of images and meanings.
Artists of the project: Steffen Kraft aka ICONEO (Germany), who became popular for his illustrations, reminiscent of the problems of the modern world; Katie Meladze presents the work revealing the problem of impossibility to get to Easter services during the pandemic; Andrei Shkarin shares ideas about “extrication of responsible citizens from the restrictive measures”; Andrei Lyublinsky shows empty landscapes of Moscow, and Angelina Ermachkova devotes her work to delivery men who provided us with everything we needed during the quarantine.
The Northern Underpass is a redefined technical underpass located at –1 level of the park under the Northern Landscapes and transformed into a full-fledged urban promenade. The brutal decoration of the urban space becomes a natural background for the art and offers guests a new route connecting the two main park entry points — from the Vasilevsky Descent and from Kitaygorodsky Passage.
During the autumn, the exposition will be complemented with new works.
To visit the exhibition, you need to get a free ticket at a self-service terminal or at the ticket office of the park.
