Triumph Gallery, Moscow
Triumph Gallery is proud to announce that it is hosting Vladimir Dubossarsky’s solo project Seven Minutes for Melancholy. The exhibition will include paintings and graphic works created by the artist over the past year. Setting himself the goal of finding a new formal language, Mr Dubossarsky has created a series of works that have only one common feature – the artist himself. For a long time now the artist has not been concerned about the issue of what to portray: he randomly picks subjects for his pictures. He focuses first and foremost on the following question: "How should I portray the subject I have chosen?" The pictures on miscellaneous topics are collected in a specific order, interacting with each other and offering the spectator freedom of interpretation.
Vladimir Dubossarsky: "Recently I have become interested in creating "incorrect exhibitions", exhibitions governed by chaos that you yourself no longer control and where there cannot be any clear-cut and unambiguous interpretation, while the meanings for me personally are at times indistinguishable from the meanings for the spectator. Each picture organizes its own context and energy field and their interaction or rejection is as much a part of the project as the actual picture. That is the reason why the accuracy of the artistic language of each work, and its own specific uniqueness is important to me. I am reminded, albeit indistinctly, of the tales from college teachers on the artistic image that many students strived for, but ended up only breaking themselves in the process."
