SERGEI BORISOV. INTUITION OF A SPACE: SCULPTURE

17 july 2008—7 october 2008

On the exhibition of artworks by Saint Petersburg sculptor Sergei Borisov 10 abstract sculpture compositions made of metal, steel and composite material in 1999-2008 are presented.

Sergei Borisov is working with abstract forms successively and for a long time. His sculpture strives to express inner significance of things, relations and senses by means of its “pure” fluent form.

Original forms-signs substantiate now abstract ideas and significances (“Vector”, “Spiral”, “Yes-No”, “Fluidity”), now nature, its calamities and elements (“Iron Wind”, “Trans-Cloud”, “Fossil”), now emotional tension of relations and passions (“Hunting for Whales”, “Go Away”). Sculptures made of different material — from traditional (metal and stone) to modern plastic — give opportunities not only for experimenting with colour and texture diversity of surfaces, but even with inner lighting of sculptural forms.

16 july—4 october 2021

The exhibition at the Russian Museum brings together the works of Italian and Russian futurists, which allow a viewer to witness the originality of each of the two national versions of this large-scale creative movement. The fundamental works of Italian futurism are shown in dialogue with the iconic works of Russian masters. This will provide an opportunity to see their similarities and differences and deeper perceive the era of avant-garde experiments that swept across Europe.

Lev Yudin is known today to a greater extent due to his belonging to Kazimir Malevich's circle. However, Yudin also earned his own place in history: he grew into an independent, deep and versatile master who managed to “say his own word” in art.
