Exhibition Alena Tereshko "Why f" Automatic translate
с 11 по 22 Февраля
The exhibition of Alena Tereshko “Why F” is one of the stages of many years of work on the experiences of her own interaction with the paintings of the past that exist today in the status of a masterpiece. The artist invents her workshop of fake fakes, taking into account the academic practices of introducing “classics” through copying, as well as the more exciting stories of fake manufacturers, whose commercially biased attention to the artistic heritage may lead to the appearance of incorrectly cataloged originals. The exhibition presents copies of Judith by Giorgione and Vermeer’s Glass of Wine, Velasquez’s Venus in the Mirror and Rembrandt’s Danai, as well as other super-known works, unlike copies that arose from attempts to reconstruct these works from the point of view of the model model. Optical experiments, reconstruction of the “view of the era” and modern interpretations of the plot are tools that allow you to “revise” the tradition.
In the essay by Linda Nohlin, “Why were there no great women artists?”, One of the fundamental texts for the gender history of art, the researcher shows that the career opportunities of artists in the classical academic system were limited, including through the “inadmissibility” of their work with nudity. Alyona Tereshko discovers the opportunity to create her own gallery of masterpieces, checking on the artistic experience the intense significance of the connection between these social roles. The question of the place / appropriateness of a woman in the art profession turns out to be a way to live, peer, or even allow herself to enter works that are surrounded by a halo of museum inaccessibility.
