Prechistenka, house 21, an exhibition of sculptural works of the Honored Artist of Russia, Academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Dmitry Nikitovich Tugarinov, dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the master, will open.
Laureate of the Moscow Komsomol Prize, holder of the Order of St. Anne of the III degree, participant of the Quadrennial of Contemporary Art in France in 2014 - this is only a small part of the merit, awards and official titles of the sculptor.
Dmitry Nikitovich Tugarinov is a legendary character, now occupying a special place in the Russian sculpture school. He is called "Gogol in sculpture." Like the great writer, Tugarinov’s works are distinguished by an extremely modern spectrum of images, although they also guess traditional features familiar to everyone.
The fact is that he and his work exist in a certain mythological space, reflecting a special world full of extravagance, meaningful images and eternal irony. Obviously, therefore, a number of his sculptures leave a noticeable mark in modern life.
Dmitry Tugarinov is the only sculptor in the history of Switzerland who managed to install two sculptures by Alexander Suvorov high in the Alps at the St. Gotthard Pass - at the place where his victorious army crossed in the war with Napoleonic troops. At the same time, in Switzerland, by law, it is forbidden to put monuments to the military and foreigners. Be that as it may, the opening of its monuments and the associated anniversaries in the Alps today take place in the presence of a large number of visitors, and local authorities are very pleased with the significant influx of tourists from around the world.
For all his creative practice Tugarinov created more than six hundred easel and monumental works. However, in the halls of the Russian Academy of Arts only the main works of the sculptor will be exhibited.
The exposition will be conceptually divided into ten rooms, each of which is dedicated to a specific topic. For example, in the first hall of the exhibition guests will be greeted by the famous work “Shoes” - a little girl in her mother’s shoes walking in an improvised dump of sculptures.
A third place will occupy a special place - with the history of the monument to Suvorov, already mentioned above. According to many, this is a key work in the creative biography of Dmitry Tugarinov.
The seventh hall will always be devoted to the theme of the Fifth Column always (especially today).
The tenth final hall - Birch Grove - is a kind of meditation pavilion, where visitors can, in the pleasant surroundings of Tugarinov’s sculptural works, comprehend his amazing work.
It is interesting that in one of ten halls the works of the wife of Dmitry Tugarinov, the sculptor Athena Georgievna Popandopulo, will be exhibited. Portrait cartoons of friends and colleagues make up the DNA of the sculptor. For about thirty years, Popandopulo and Tugarinov have been working side by side in one workshop, but, as you can see at the exhibition, this does not prevent any of them from creating their own artistic world.
