MIHAIL CHEMIAKIN. SIDEWALKS OF PARIS

MIHAIL CHEMIAKIN. SIDEWALKS OF PARIS
29 may 2013—5 august 2013

For the last 12 years Mihail Chemiakin has photographed discarded paper, dead leaves, cigarette butts, spots of paint, cracks, plantain tree bark and spots on the wall in nocturnal Paris. The artist found in these photographs fantastic scenes and grotesque characters. He drew these images with pastel and ink on matte prints of the photographs. Thus arose a new technique in drawing and a new view of the astounding riches hidden in the humble, ignored world under our feet.

The exhibition of 210 works in this technique on various themes, including Theatre, Petersburg, the Civil War, The Siege of Leningrad, Dances of Death, among others, is accompanied by a documentary film "Trottoirs of Paris" by Andrei Zagdansky, and video-installations by Mihail Chemiakin.

On 20 June 2013; 27 June 2013 (Thursday) at 7 p.m. in the framework of Mihail Chemiakin. Sidewalks of Paris exhibition the Theatre of Dance "Intellbalet" presents the Leaves Ballet (choreographer Larissa Ivanova, music by Karlheinz Stockhausen, R.Kendo) in the Marble Hall on the motifs of art works by Mihail Chemiakin.

The exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Kupetz Eliseevs Food Hall, SNG Group and Baltiysky Bank  

Thursday, July 4 at 7.00 p.m.

Marble Palace, Marble Room (2nd floor)

Vladimir Koshevoy will read from the works of the OBERIU literary group active in Russia in the 1920's and 1930's. A.Vvedensky, D.Kharms and N.Oleinikov were opposed to the slick literary of the establishment, preferring to experiment with rhyme and rhythm. The concert consists of ten poems read by theater and film actor Vladimir Koshevoy, with a contemporary musical accompaniment, in a wide range of styles, created by composer Max Voitov (Amy Peters and MultFilmi groups) for bass, piano and guitar.
