The State Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan with the participation of the Triumph Gallery (Moscow) presents an exhibition in the halls of the Gallery of Modern Art of the Pushkin Museum"Inverso Mundus" by AES + F artists(Tatyana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovich, Eugene Svyatsky, Vladimir Fridkes).

AES + F offer viewers their work at the junction of photography, video and digital technology, but constantly pay attention to traditional techniques, especially sculpture, as well as painting, drawing and architecture.

Back in the 16th century, stories in painting and engravings on the topic of the “inverted world” were popular, representing a kind of joke, an irony that ridicules the absurdities of the world. They showed scenes where a pig refreshes a butcher, a child punishes his teacher, a man carries a donkey on his shoulders, etc. These engravings included images of chimeras, demons, fish flying across the sky and, in fact, death. In the interpretation of AES + F, the absurd scenes of a medieval carnival look like episodes of modern life in a multi-channel video installation. The characters act out scenes of absurd social utopias and change masks, transforming from beggars to rich, from policemen to thieves.

AES + F has held over 100 solo exhibitions in museums, exhibition halls and commercial galleries around the world. AES + F works were exhibited in such prestigious places as Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (Berlin), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Martin-Gropius-Bau (Berlin), Casino Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Kiasma (Helsinki), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), Tate Britain (London), Institute of International Visual Arts (InIVA, various cities in Great Britain), Passage De Retz (Paris), Vanhaerents collection (Brussels), MACRO Future (Rome), Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (Madrid), Pushkin Museum im. Pushkin (Moscow) and many others.
