Anya Zholud: Exhibition Continues
Moscow Museum of Modern Art
May 15 may – June 13 2010
“Exhibition Continues” project at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art will feature a range of familiar works by Anya Zholud within one artistic and physical space. The starting point of the exhibition is the image of a gantry crane, casting a giant shadow over the walls of a 4-storey museum building. Around this axis, the works reflecting the artist’s interest in global themes will gravitate: “The Scheme of Elementary Happiness Space”, “Cultural Institutions”, “Paintings and Sculptures”, “Emptiness”…
The art of Anya Zholud revolves around emptiness, absence, and understatement – these notions will become the key subjects in this exhibition. In the “Exhibition Continues” the emptiness becomes ubiquitous; it fills almost the entire museum space. This motif can be traced in every element of the exhibition display – from empty frames, inviting the viewer to “complete” them with paintings, to the large like-named installation, in which all contours, usually lined with metal, are erased.
