January 24, 2020 in the gallery GUM-Red-Line will open the exhibition "Orlitsky vs Tuzova." It will be the first rivalry between two young artists, Maxim Orlitsky and Ivan Tuzov, working in completely different manners and techniques.
As Hegel wrote, the main thing in painting is the color and form of the limitation of space. Maxim Orlitsky is a painter in the Hegelian sense of the word, that is, he works with color as with matter. The form of the painting is also important to him, and he often splits one work into several parts.
Ivan Tuzov is the author of the post-Internet era. It uses a pixelated image. Perception focused on memes and icons sets the visual paradigm of our era. New symbolic structures are like hieroglyphs. But the hieroglyphs of Tuzov are grotesque and ironic.
The pathos of one balances criticism of the other. The work of Ivan Tuzov deacralizes the Soviet space of the Exalted. The works of Maxim Orlitsky revive the attitude to Painting as a sacred knowledge and painting as a ritual. The works of Tuzov and Orlitsky collide in the space of the GUM. The fundamental difference between the two art systems is updated at the time of the art battle.
Art battle is a new type of performance. A duel on brushes and paints visualizes competition: two authors fight each other until the victorious end. In the project “Orlitsky against,” he each time opposes another author, “improving” his work, while a competitor does the same with the work of Orlitsky.
The art battle demystifies art production. The attention of the audience is shifted from object to subject, that is, from works to their authors. Observation of the process of painting is now available to the general public. The gesture of applying paint to the canvas itself is presented to the viewer as an artistic one.
The exhibition occupies two rooms, one of which houses the works of Maxim Orlitsky, and the other - Ivan Tuzov. An art battle takes place on the stage during the opening day. Two works created during it after the opening will be constantly exhibited in the gallery. The mounted video of the performance three days after the opening will be constantly broadcast on the gallery screen until the end of the exhibition.
The curator of the exhibition is Mikhail Sidlin.
