Erarta Museum presents an exhibition of surreal costumes by Venus Kazarova, concealing a keen sense of the imperfection of the world under masks
- The costume as an art object that does not pretend to be utilitarian
- The sophisticated beauty and vulnerability of a white sheet of paper
- The author, whose installation was presented at the Moscow Fashion Week
The art of Venus Kazarova is the art of shock. The unusualness of the author’s works hides a keen sense of the imperfection of the world. “When I watch the news, then I don’t understand how you can create when this happens,” says the artist. - I have a feeling that I have no right to do this. That the world needs to be changed. But I can not. And nobody can. I work with what shocks me the most, namely beauty, violence and absurdity. You look at something beautiful, but you remember that there is something terrible about beauty. "
Kazarova defines her style as fashion surrealism. Her works are built on complex images, dreams and associations, imbued with subtle psychologism. The artist’s work is rooted in the carnival culture: with the help of a costume, the author turns a person into a fantastic creature, into a superhero, but at the same time strives to protect him. It is no coincidence that Venera Kazarova often uses blankets, pillows and even mattresses in her work. In these quirky outfits, people resemble beautiful and fragile Christmas tree decorations, carefully wrapped in cotton wool until next year. The artist skillfully uses paper: its fragility and vulnerability attract Kazarova. “This is what I work with. This is what I associate myself with. A blank sheet of paper is the ultimate form of impracticality, ”she explains.
The costumes of Venus Kazarova presented at the exhibition in the Erarta Museum are not utilitarian and not even theatrical - they are art objects that the author combines into total installations and performances. In the stream of contemporary art, which often suffers from morbidity and infantilism, the work of a young, sought-after artist is distinguished by idealism and inner ethics.
