The 'Electric Earth'

6 march 2003—7 april 2003
The "Electric Earth" exhibition opens the programme of the British Council dedicated to the tercentenary of Saint Petersburg. The "Electric Earth" exhibition introduces the video art of young but already renowned British artist: Mark Leckey, Oliver Payne, Nick Relph, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rob Kennedy, Mark Titchner, Hilary Lloyd, Paul Rooney, Carey Young, Stephen Sutcliffe, Torsten Lauschmann, Jeremy Deller, Alan Kane, Luke Fowler, Volker Eichelmann, Roland Rust, Adam Chodzko. The exhibition offers the opportunity to look at the peculiarities of British culture and daily life. First and foremost it reflects the topical problems of the young generation of Great Britain. The artists chronicle the culture they belong to, expand their understanding of social systems and codes. Their video-based works are not "home-made" digital camera films or glamorous MTV video-clips. "Electric Earth" is a new wave of video-art. The British artists revise the achievements of almost half a century old video-art, examine the border line between cinema and video-art, documentary films and movies, keep their critical eye on the way the culture of the young generation is presented in mass media. "Electric Earth" is the first exhibition held in the newly restored halls of the Marble Palace intended for the display of modern art. The British video-art artist belong to the Post-YBA generation. At the moment they are in the focus of attention of curators, art critics and art historians who think them to be the new stars of modern British art. The exhibition is organized by the Russian Museum (The Ludwig Museum in the Russian Museum) and the British Council in Saint Petersburg (6 March - 7 April 2003). Then it will tour Russia for three months (Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Ekaterinburg).
