Cultural Dialogue Between Russia and Europe

Cultural Dialogue Between Russia and Europe
Ceramics, paint, coins 25x20x40cm 2014


In the (post)modern informatized world we all are obliged to communicate to succeed. Also, art often is an instrument of international diplomacy. A situation of yet another binational exhibition staged to simply communicate was used to question the possibility of such an exchange by presenting a visual cliché which easily could have been used in a political caricature. Modern subject is depicted as a self-sufficient economical entity. The European side is a perfectly functional one while the Russian counterpart is malfunctioning and the only contribution to the global dialogue is its plea to be free.
