Russian artists Erik Bulatov (1933) and Andrei Molodkin (1966), though born in two different eras, both saw the end of communism. Their work, presented here, expresses the people's resignation and the slow death of political power. Visitors can enjoy a silent, but fascinating dialogue between the two geniuses.
The artist recreated street scenes on large canvases in his famous graphic style, inspired by constructivism. They feature sentences written in Russian such as giant letters claiming that "this is not scary", in fact a twist on the paradoxal requirements of propaganda.
Creations as destabilising are feaatured in the gallery: letters filled with human blood trace sentences found in teenage sub-culture. The artists offers though his work a synthetic vision of culture and the concerns of young people.
