Gift exibition!

Fading painting. Ephemeral art. Art Paradoxes


The exhibition room is a darkened hall, where the walls are translucent screens (as in the theater of shadows).
On the reverse side of these walls are projectors that project Akrolesta’s paintings from the Art Puzzle series onto the screens.
Each image is a contour of a painting of the famous artist, a pseudo-hieroglyph.
The task of the viewer is to guess the neame of the painting on the screen.
To find out the answer, the visitor approaches the screen, near which there is a box on the pedestal.
To see the answer, the visitor must make a “magic pass” - hold his hand over the box.
When a visitor passes his hand over the box, he closes the photocell circuit and light appears in the box. Now the visitor can read the name of the artist and see the original painting.

Thus, the exhibition turns into an intellectual and educational game with the audience. The painting seems to be there and at the same time it does not exist. We see only the outline, the shadow.
Art seems to be as it is, and at the same time it does not exist, because it cannot be touched in any way. Even the projector’s beam is hidden from the viewer behind the screen.
(This exhibition echoes other well-known works, paradoxes and provocations: “Artist"s Breath” by Piero Manzoni, Marcel Duchamp"s “Air of Paris”, “Immatériel” and “Le Vide” by Yves Klein).

Here are some examples of such art puzzles, presented not on the screen, but in the form of posters.

The exhibition of works by Akrolesta can be organized in three ways.

Option 1. Exhibition of full-scale reproductions (for paintings)

After determining the subject of the exhibition and selection of works, the organizers are sent files of paintings in EPS and JPG format with the indication of the sizes and material on which you want to print reproductions.
In this case, the organizer receives a full-fledged exhibition and does not bear the costs of delivery and insurance of paintings, payment of travel expenses and residence of the artist and his team.
The artist"s fee for the exhibition is discussed separately.

Option 2. Exhibition of original works (for paintings)

The organizer pays for the delivery and insurance of paintings (round-trip), pays for travel expenses and accommodation for the duration of the exhibition of the artist and his team (3 persons).
The artist"s fee for the exhibition is discussed separately.

Option 3. Conceptual exhibition

This version of the exhibition can be realized in any space, depending on the context of the exhibition. All variants can be configured as a constructor for a specific place.
The costs of the organizers include the same expenditure as in option 1 - remote author"s supervision, or as in option 2 - personal author"s supervision.
In addition, depending on the specific concept, additional costs for materials for the creation of exhibition space may be required.
All these costs, as well as the artist"s fee, are specified after determining the concept, style and size of the exposition.
