On June 7 at 15.00 in the House of the Governor (Revolyutsiya Ave., 22) within the framework of the VIII International Platonov Festival of Arts the solemn opening of the exhibition “Pit” will be held.
At the exhibition, based on the landmark works of Andrei Platonov, the painting, objects and installations of the Moscow artist Mikhail Roshnyak are presented.
All the work of Platonov is impregnated with the theme of searching for the meaning of life, a comprehensive truth and, of course, the theme of death and its overcoming. So Mikhail Roshnyak, using an unusual material for creativity, categorically disagreeing with the principles of artistic academism, is trying to approach the discovery of truth and understanding the most complex meanings of human life. The author’s paintings made of earth symbolize and reveal the mystery of the existence of a man who, all his life, digs a pit in the hope of achieving the notorious happiness, not noticing how life passes him and the pit from the place of building a happy life turns into the grave of unrealized dreams and false views.
