Opening reception: 26 March, 18:00
“Trees, cars, figures of people, assorted barriers” explores the aesthetics of contemporary Russian cityscape, taking Moscow as the perfect example of any post-Soviet inhabited location. Historically, the archetype city and the model for any other city within Russian cultural space, Moscow also acts as the place where changes in the cultural landscape become most pronounced and are visible with special acuteness. Photographs are accompanied with textual descriptions questioning whether the image might be equal to the sum of its elements, as well as our readiness to filter out when looking whatever is perceived as familiar.
