BAIBAKOV art projects announces the next stage in its international program, which promotes Russian contemporary art abroad. BAIBAKOV art projects and Maria Baibakova are proud to present a showcase of works by Olga Chernysheva as part of GOGOLFEST, a multidisciplinary festival held in Kiev’s famous Dovzhenko Film Studios from September 4–12. Chernysheva is one of the most eloquent and important artists working in Russia today. Her work explores the possibility of a silent film to speak volumes, of how the fall of an Empire can be expressed in the simple, seemingly meaningless gestures of her subjects. Within the space of the film studios, viewers feel the contrast between the produced theatricality of their surroundings and the understated observations of Chernysheva’s camera, amplifying the impact of the works.
Kiev, Ukraine, Dovzhenko Film Studio, 5—12 September 2010
