INVITATION TO RECEPTION IN COLOGNE
15th ART MOSCOW
Friday, April 15th
5 – 10 PM
Exhibition of Taisia Korotkova
Saturday, April 16th
1 – 6 PM
ART MOSCOW and non-commercial exhibition of Taisia Korotkova, the Kandinsky Prize Winner 2010, invite you to a reception at colourblindGallery during Art Cologne 2011 in Germany.
In Reproduction series Taisia combines impressions on her recent stay in the hospital with imagery of recent technology for artificial insemination. Reproduction depicts the process of high-tech artificial child production in the contemporary world. In images she strips bare the intimate subject of child perception without any privacy by depicting the process as purely scientific and machine based. The anti-utopist Korotkova stresses that she recreates the already observed with sharper edges, however, the style reminds of optimistic illustrations of the 1960s with the cold pastel tones in tempera.
Korotkova paints modern icons in the technique of old icon painting with a dip of humanized social realist painting. In December 2010 Taisia received the Kandinsky Prize for two works from the Reproduction series. In 2011 Taisia Korotkova is invited to participate at the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art.
ART MOSCOW is happy to invite you to the exhibition and reception and inform about the 15th International art fair in Moscow and art events in September 2011.
