The exhibition addresses the problem of the relationship of painting and artistic and historical stereotypes. Being one of the traditional forms of art, painting is associated with the practice of two-dimensional image and its ability to express reality, vision, light, emotions. In modern painting, there are two approaches: the traditional one, when an artist with a brush, paint, canvas seeks new possibilities for creating an image, and an innovative, reflecting influence of media images that undermine our belief in truth, politics, reality.
The name of the exhibition refers to the thoughts of the philosopher Paul Vilyrjo about the meaning of the changed image and its new relationship with the world. “Recoding” proceeds from the fact that the artistic image always has to do with the code, which serves as the basis for its understanding. At the end of the 20th century, under the influence of the media, these codes changed, which cannot be ignored when interpreting a painting, even if the picture is painted in oil in the traditional manner or uses media and computer images.
The exhibition “Transcoder. Before and after media in abstraction "confronts the approaches of two artists of different generations. Both authors, Mice Jankulovski (born in 1954) and Olga Tobreluts (born in 1970) work in painting technique, but they use different artistic methods.
The artistic style of Jankulovski goes back to the language of abstract painting of the early 1970s. In the new series of paintings, the author focuses on her material aspect - on the very texture of the canvas surface, its ability in different ways, depending on the lighting, to clarify images. The artist uses black monochrome painting to give the opportunity to feel its dynamic structure.
For Olga Tobreluts, who stood at the origins of the creation of the St. Petersburg New Academy of Fine Arts, the ideals of beauty are important. Turning to historical artistic values, she experimented a lot with digital processing of images based on photography. In recent years, the artist returned to painting: her works are images of designs from fractals, built with the help of computer programs. Olga Tobreluts paints pictures in traditional painting technique, pointing out the importance of academic technique in creating works of art even in the computer age.
The exhibition confronts the work of these artists in their relation to the light. If for Jankulovski the surface of the picture itself becomes the basis for expressiveness, then Tobreluts achieves a luminous effect using traditional pigments and a variety of color mixing, revealing the limitations of that set of features of computer programs. In painting, Yankulovski light becomes a tangible physical experience for the viewer, and in paintings Tobreluts creates an illusionist effect.
Artists will present their works in the form of an installation resembling a palindrome, within which the viewer is invited to reflect on the updated value of painting. The idea of "recoding" helps to consider the many nuances of painting by Jankulovski and Tobreluts, to designate a critical position in relation to concepts: they will acquire new meaning if they are approached differently, analyzing all existing media and presenting the process of creating works.
