Anastasia Khoroshilova - russkie
Vernissage: Thursday, 21st June 07, 7.30 p.m., the exhibition runs until 27th July 07.
I called my biggest project, "Russkie." I want to bring together people of various nationalities and various religious confessions who, over time, landed in the Russian state from all kinds of other countries to live together in conditions shaped by history. History has already subjected these people to so many trials and experiments that constant anxiety has become their life and fate. That is why I immediately decided for myself: even in my arbitrary visual world, I will leave them be as they are. I do not wish, nor do I have the right, to meddle with their reality and trouble them once more. At the conceptual level, they became my conception.
