#ATTRACTION exhibition projects are presented by Manege Central Exhibition Hall together with Russia’ leading cultural institutions. The project’s mission is to help the local audience learn more about works by Russian and international artists, as well as interdisciplinary curatorial exhibition projects outside St. Petersburg.
Triumph Gallery will present its key artists at the Other Shores exhibition in Manege. This project reviews opportunities to keep and pass on experience and knowledge through personal notes, maps and routes. The exhibition is based on the idea of a psychogeographic drifting or studying urban environment through one’s aesthetic and emotional experience (the term was introduced by Guy Debord). In their works, the artists conceptualize the changes in up-to-date world. The reality they recreate in installations, videos, paintings and sculpture becomes a true mosaic of observations, collective memory fragments and imaginations of a potential future.
Another important connection on the one hand is the river of Moscow and the river of St. Petersburg on the other hand. Unlike the latter one, Moscow’s positioning doesn’t seem to be that crucial riverwise. Besides, for St. Petersburg Moscow is indeed "the other shore", culturally, politically and socially.
Another allusion is an attempt to take a look at social reality we’re so used to from another shore. Most of the works present a take on the urban environment from an unorthodox level, as well as fantasies of its transformation.
