This is an exhibition dedicated to the summer. After all, it happens in the country once a year. Officially, it lasts three months, ninety-two days long. Literally passes in an instant. Only you start to feel it as another time comes that is darker and colder. People during this period tend to experience everything: visit the newly opened trendy bar, see the best open airs, read a stack of books, watch another film at the same festival in Sochi or Cannes, go to the park, the zoo, recover on a trip, go to grandma to the village with an unusual name. This list may not end so easily. After all, so many things you want to catch in such a short period of time when the air becomes warmer and the sounds louder. A new series of works is a dream of summer, the heat of which is the perpetual motion engine of all living things. It exists in a free state. There is relentless fun and there is no stench, every minute, year-round. This is a world where no one wants to claim dominance. Here everyone is equal in his own way. Here the boundaries between human and animal are erased. Here the crocodile lives without a cage. This is a world in which there is no zoo. There is a tacit agreement between people and animals. Manikhin draws what is apparently in the media and what is missing from the modern man living in the central Russian strip.
