“Forest” is the name of the new project of the famous Krasnodar artist Vladimir Migachev, which the ARTSTORY gallery will show from April 11 to May 26, 2019. The audience will have to dive into the total installation of the master, who is most interested in the space that surrounds us all; It worries how the landscape reflects what is happening in post-ecological society.
The main part of the Forest project will be large-scale paintings of 2, 8 by 1, 5 meters. “Column trees bearing the dome of the temple of nature - an archetypal image that has been reflected in temple architecture since ancient times, and in the sacred texts that lie at the origins of our cultural code… Combined into a single solemn ensemble, these works help the artist create an image of that very forest, which, according to a stable expression, “must be seen behind the trees,” that is, a meaningful whole hidden behind individual phenomena. ” (Mikhail Ovchinnikov).
These are some kind of portraits. "Portraits of the landscape." Answers to questions about the world and the person who creates and destroys it daily with their own hands: about those abandoned houses or entire villages that are not difficult to find in the suburban forests; about whether trees standing without leaves are dying or reborn.
The forest always remains somewhere nearby. You can not notice it, you can just get used to the monotonous landscape - just the kind that we see on many canvases by Migachev.
“This is not even sadness, anxiety, longing - this is disappointment. I read somewhere: “Why in Russia landscape design is done from home to the fence? Probably because behind the fence is not our space? ”Forest is also not our space, judging by the consumer attitude to it!” - says the author.
Visitors to Vladimir Migachev’s exhibitions, which took place in the ARTSTORY gallery - “Internal Migration” (2018), “The Land. Observation diary ”(2016),“ Middle Strip ”(2014) - they could more than once be convinced that each project, each work is the result of disturbing thoughts and observations of the artist about the conflict between man and nature.
The artist does not invite us for a walk (in his works you can hardly find human figures), he literally immerses the viewer in the space of the Forest, leaving him to independently understand the meanings and emotions the author invested in this or that work.
In his canvases, Vladimir Migachev uses a unique author’s pictorial technique. Often, in addition to paints, coal, ash or quartz sand are on the canvas. The new exhibition will present a total installation where tree trunks move from canvases to the floor, erasing borders and metaphorically pushing the gallery space.
