Museum ART4 presents a personal project of Vasily Kononov-Gredin "Russian death".
The project proposes to follow the rituals associated with death, in its various aspects, how a person's attitude towards it changes. The exposition acquaints viewers with the work of the author of an unusual fate, who in his works turns to large forms, the space of total installation, works with painting, sculpture, video, objects, smells, and sound.
The exhibition "Russian Death" is a study of the meaning of death in Russian culture. Globalization erases the differences between peoples; traditions passed down from generation to generation are forgotten. But the attitude towards death, ritual and ceremony, remains as sacred: from the first discovered grave of a Neanderthal, strewn with flowers, to modern crematoria. Every nation has a different attitude to death, and in this respect its identity is revealed.
