The image or sacred meaning of the Ship, Ark, Boat, Sailboat is inextricably linked with all eras and styles of fine art. For the Russian Academy of Arts, this topic in art is especially interesting - the Russian Navy and the Imperial Academy of Arts were created by Peter Ι. The exposition symbolically opens with the picture of Academician Lev Lagorio "View of the Academy of Arts from the Neva " (1880, NIM RAX, St. Petersburg) - a ship, as a metaphor for endless travel and searches in the continuum of art.
The exposition combines the area of the museum and exhibition complex in the symbolic "Ship ". All spaces, including a permanent exhibition, are involved in the project - each hall will become one of the stages of the Journey, revealing the facets of the metaphor of this image.
The ship is the central semantic node of human cultures. A man is what his ships are. His aspirations, his subconscious drives, his ideological twists materialize in ships.
The ship marks a dream, which, perhaps, one day will come closer to a sleepy seaside city, overshadowed by scarlet sails. Already there is no strength to hope, but not hope too.
A ship signifies life itself. It moves to a distant and hardly understandable goal above the dark abysses of otherness, under the eternal stars. And the ship goes. It goes, hear. La nave va. (A. Yakimovich)
"Ship " as a system filled with meanings is an idea that is timeless and adequate to any historical and artistic period known to mankind. The structure of the exposition is based on this principle - mixing and violation of all possible time and stylistic boundaries traditional for "academic exhibition ". In different in the halls of the complex, works of art of the ХVΙΙΙ, XΙX, XX centuries and our time will unite for a story about stories related to water and the ship - about travel, about a legend, about tragedy, danger and salvation, about heroes and rum The distinction between the stylistic language and formal techniques characteristic of the art of one time or another, for works located in a single space and united only by a subtle hint of a common theme or situation, not only does not interfere with the visual perception of a particular work, but sometimes it reveals "pulls to the surface " hidden meanings and cultural layers of a work of art, generates subtle associations and historical dialogues.
Well-known expressions - Navigare necesse est vivere non est necesse (It’s not necessary to live, swimming on the sea is necessary) and Vita brévis, ars lónga (Life is short, art is eternal) is the leitmotif of the project "Ship.
