March 29, 2019 in the Museum of Moscow will open the exhibition-novel “New arrivals. Chest memory. The project of the writer Marina Moskvina and artist Leonid Tishkov, who designed the exhibition space, will present both fragments of the heritage of the Zakharov-Moskvin family, as well as exhibits from the collection of the Museum of Moscow - photos of the revolutionary time and household items.
According to the authors, this exhibition is not just a historical excursion, a saga or fiction, but a fusion of all these three concepts, an exhibition-novel about the history of the Moscow-Zakharov-Moskvin family. In the center of the narration is a ship’s chest, lifted from the ship Zhenerosa in Novorossiysk, which sank in the 20s of the last century. The chest was kept in the Zakharov-Moskvin family for more than a hundred years, gradually filling with family values and relics that guests of the Museum of Moscow can now see.
From the bottom of the sea, his grandfather of Marina Moskvina, Stepan Zakharov, took part in three wars and three revolutions, the hero of her novels Krio and Dustbin for the Diamond Sutra. In the 1920s, Zakharov, a resident of the legendary Nirnsee house in Bolshoy Gnezdnikovsky Lane, was one of the leaders of the Rogozhsko-Simonovsky district of Moscow, and Stepan Zakharov managed to keep the chest and its precious contents, despite the wars and relocation.
Project curator Marina Moskvin: “He was an obsessive archivist, like Pushkin’s miserly knight, shot by pile, put him in a trunk of evidence of his life: countless photographs, credentials and conference mandates, meeting transcripts, magazines and newspapers, letters of recommendation, and love notes, and even the pencils with which they were written. "
Visitors will be able to learn about the fate of the writer’s second grandfather - no less than the legendary figure of Boris Terentyevich Moskvin, a diplomat who worked in the 1920s and 30s in England, Germany and the USA, and other famous relatives, such as the commandant of the Grand Kremlin Palace and Lenin’s Mausoleum Gergard Napoleonovich Tsvirko. Their photos, letters, personal belongings will be presented, and most importantly - the stories about them of Marina Moskvina.
