KultProekt is presenting works of Mikhail Molochnikov. Geometric figures and graphemes — a basic unit of the alphabet that could be either a letter or a hieroglyph — are explored as basic forms. The viewer is discovering the symbol during the moments of reflection. While looking at works of Mikhail Molochnikov, the audience can meditatively immerse into the art, as if they were reading Buddhist mantras. In his works organic shapes have both symbolic and fractal meanings, imbued with bright energy. His works are partly decorative and refer to the works of Russian artists of the 20th century. They are associated with the “Russian seasons” by Sergei Diaghilev. Diversity of shapes and the colorfulness and brightness of Mikhail’s works refer us to the creations of Leon Bakst and the choreography of Vaclav Nijinsky in the ballet “The Afternoon Rest of the Faun”.
Kultproekt participation is part of a special grant program launched in 2019 by Cube.Moscow, the innovative platform for the collaboration of galleries, artists, and curators, and iPureland, the New York-based curatorial, producing and creative collaborations agency. The first of its kind initiative in Russia supports galleries’ representation in high-quality international art fairs.
