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.
