Today in Venice in the 53rd Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art opens a personal exhibition of Russian artists Alexander Vinogradov and Vladimir Dubossarskoe Danger! Museum

Moscow Museum of Modern Art in the 53rd Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art presents exhibition of Russian artists Alexander Vinogradov and Vladimir Dubossarskoe Danger! Museum. The exhibition opened at the Palazzo Bollani (Castello 3647, Rio della Pieta) from 4 June to 22 November 2009, admission free.

The Museum as a place of art possesses a powerful energy. Artists will talk about the secret life of an imaginary museum, which is usually not striking to visitors. In the monumental paintings, created specifically for the project, Vinogradov and Dubossarskii synthesized images of the Renaissance, the avant-garde and mass-media pieces. Texture huge canvases, and the smell of paint still on the attributes of high art and refer to the legacy of Raphael, Tintoretto, Durer, Veronese, Leonardo, Titian, Rembrandt and other great masters of the past.

But the artists are preparing the audience a surprise. Suddenly, a exhibition visitors become participants in the installation: while they are studying painting, paintings, in turn, watched over them. The museum ceases to be a safe place for human beings - even in the quiet and cool and exhibition halls for us constantly someone is following. The relationship between visitors and the art of record and becomes part of the self, no less important than the paintings themselves. The resulting communication creates an analysis for future research projects and artists.

Vinogradov and Dubossarskii working together since 1994. Unifying the language of socialist realism, pop art and kitsch with paradoxical plots and initially focused on the success and the creation of hits, the authors make their work function of a particular law. What would not have interviewed artists - the art, metamorphosis of love, war or peace - they can not see any pictures of traditional heroes, nor binding on the classical works of easel compositional completeness. Incredibly spectacular painting Vinogradova and Dubossarskoe, denying a personal revelation, similar to the tradition of bad painting. Compiling in their never-fading images of la bella vita, generated monsters advertising business and the entertainment industry, the artists create a new version of the post of Arcadia.
