The main object in the art of Irina Korina is the so-called "new aesthetic" of an objective world without heroes. The author establishes this aesthetic through the use of non-aesthetic cheap common materials – plastic building cladding and artificial colors, asphalt patterns, and mold on inflatable items and drapes.
The meditative movement of the camera through the post-apocalyptic landscapes in the video installations by Aristarkh Chernyshyov almost seem to reference the oeuvres of Tarkovsky and appear to be a modernized version of the pastoral genre, transformed via 3D animations and ambient music. The author does not interfere; he is another outside viewer.
DOCA-talk is an annual series of free open lectures that are held in preparation for the Days of Contemporary Art Festival. Famous artists, art critics, and curators talk about their experiences, about an artist’s place in the modern world, about trends in contemporary art.
