The gallery exposition presents 30 paintings by five artists with the surname Totibadze and one Pasternak. Georgy, aka Goga, Konstantin, Irina, Nana, Anton Totibadze and Sasha Pasternak and journalist Philip Dzyadko teamed up to support the traditional Exhibition of Achievements of Agriculture - VDSH - with their art project. All visitors to the gallery will have the opportunity not only to see mouth-watering paintings, but also to taste and purchase selected natural products from the best farms from all over Russia.
"This is cake. This is the cake again. These are fats, proteins and carbohydrates. This is khinkali! Meat! Meat! Meat! Cucumbers! Ribs! And this is the cake again. Sit down. Let’s eat and have fun.
Six artists whose works are presented at the exhibition are connected by at least two circumstances - careful attention to food and - almost all - the name of Totibadze. This is a separate small people - “Totibadze”, or what will be called “Totibadze dynasty” in the history of art. Future schoolchildren will write something stupid like: “The theme of food is a red thread through all the work of artists of the Totibadze dynasty. This topic also plays an important role in their lives. Probably these artists were very fond of eating. ” And all this will be true. But this is not the most important thing.
There are not many things left in the world that can unite the most diverse people. Totibadze knows the recipe for the most important unifier - a feast. Those who are fortunate enough to know them know: Totibadze - the kings of a feast, a friendly feast, where on one table some incredible dish smokes and full of glasses, and on the next are a palette and brushes. This is also why food is a frequent hero of each of the artists: they know who they are talking about. And it’s all the more interesting to see how one big topic is solved in six different ways. ”
