From Tao to Tao

POP UP MUSEUM of contemporary Russian art and NIKOLSKAYA GALLERY present a large-scale exhibition by Dmitry Plotkin "From Tao to Tao".

Visitors can see the huge paintings of the author, hypnotizing their detail.

The main idea of the project is the responsibility of Mankind to itself and to the Nature that gave birth to it for the future. Tao for Dmitry Plotkin is an absolute matter, which is in perfect harmony. It is her life-giving energy that creates a kind of original chaos from which the world is gradually built. Thus, from picture to picture, the stages of its existence are revealed up to the moment of inevitable death and the new accession of the Tao. The project shows the “history” of the creation of man, his best and worst sides and the possible decline of his civilization. The project uses the idea of virtual "puzzles" of history, each of which is responsible for its important strategic side of the existence of the world. And as a result of their merging, the irrevocable dissolution of one (external) level in another, which gave rise to it, occurs. So in the "beginning" Chaos creates Nature, and in the end it dissolves in it.
