On April 26, Pro Art`s Gallery will present in Kaluga a version of a large-scale mobile project “Metageography - images of space in the era of globalization”, which has already been presented at the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, Voronezh, London and Vladivostok.
Metageography - the area of knowledge, which is located at the intersection of philosophy, art and science. From the point of view of metageography, all space is perceived as invented and constructed, and the attention of this discipline is aimed at understanding the images of space in the modern era. Since the late 1960s, when regular flights began and the first pictures of the Earth from space were taken, the concepts of space and time, the local and global boundaries, the categories of “far” and “close”, “inside” and “outside” underwent a radical revision. Tearing away from the Earth for a while, people did not fly away anywhere and were forced to re-think of themselves in earthly space and master it by means of imagination and action.
In the modern world, physical reality, achievable or only conceivable, is complemented by a virtual one. And the metageorgia aims to construct an image of a new space and a new person who has previously inconceivable freedom of movement, becomes a nomad (nomad) who breaks away from the place, wanders and hangs in an imaginary “nowhere”.
The project combines the experiences of artists of different generations from the 1970s to the 2000s: May Miturich, Mark Ulupov, Garif Basyrov, Pavel Otdelnov, Evgenia Buravleva and Egor Plotnikov.
