THE ATTRIBUTES OF ART
The drawings and objects. 28.12.2016 – 3.02.2017
The new project by Timothy Smirnov includes 10 art objects. The author considers
where in everyday life people are confronted with the fact that works of art depict. The artist says: "In the past times images had a hierarchy. In the dining room of a Russian mansion portraits of heroes, such as Bagration, Barclay de Tolly hang, in the bedchamber hang portraits of the host relatives. Disgraced relatives were placed under a cloth, like parrots sheltered to sleep. And the closer to the kitchen, the more so called "ointment jar pictures” could be seen on the walls. What is the hierarchy in our time? After the "Revolt of Masses" by Jose Ortega-y-Gasset, it became clear that they all are pictures from the same jars. Well, almost all. There are no more pictures in the houses now. Not so long ago we could at least see calendars and pin-ups in lavatories, and what is there now?"
