Eduard Kochergin

27 september 2007—20 january 2008
The exhibition is dedicated to the 70th anniversary of one of the leading Russian theater artists - Eduard Kochergin. The viewers will see sketches of decorations and costumes for the artist's most remarkable works from many museum collections. Scale models and properties help to reconstruct the atmosphere of the bygone performances, which will remain in the memory of theater art lovers forever. Performances, got up by Kochergin, are considered masterpieces of Russian theatre of the twentieth century, for example, King Henry IV, Moliere, Story of a Horse in the Bolshoi Theater, The Golovlevs in the Moscow Academic Art Theater, Brothers and Sisters, House, Demons in the Maly Theater, Alexei Tolstoy Trilogy in the Vera Komissarzhevskaya Theater. Georgy Tovstonogov, with whom the artist had worked for several decades, wrote: 'Kochergin grasps the object (performance) in a moment and is able to find a precise space and plastic approach. As a result a concise stage image, full of meanings, feelings and associations, arises... Kochergin is a first-class professional both in his projects and their realization'. David Borovsky, Kochergin's colleague and famous artist, considered that 'Kochergin's stage compositions reflected his experience and his artistic interests. He managed to combine genre and conditional theater, naturalism, surrealism, dadaism and Russian lubok in single mixture'.
