Dmitry Shorin is the young Saint-Petersburg artist. He worked out rigid, slashing, forceful, tactile visual style. Dmitry Shorin tries to emphasize a certain mental plan of youth, i.e. definite condition of consciousness. This condition is filled with discomfortable sense of necessary choice between reality of life and virtual reality. Now he puffs real, almost genre plan, accents corporality, now in one and the same work he throws up Rubik’s Cube, articulates plurality and invariant character.
Shorin’s characters are not glamour heroes. They are recognizable and defenseless, angular and uncared-for, they have abrasions and socks full of holes. What they can’t loose is their natural sexuality that is difficult to see in contemporary Russian art.

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
