VLADEY Space, 4th Syromyatnichesky lane 1/8, bld.7

VLADEY presents a solo exhibition by Dmitriy Gutov «Became clear the strange thoughts, torturing his mind» within the framework of the «Artist of the Week program». A series of works was created based on Alexander Pushkin's poem «The Bronze Horseman»: poems, wood and metal depict poetic lines. The works balance between calligraphy and collapsing covers of constructivist and futuristic books. Since the late 1980s Gutov has began to work with quotes from his favorite authors: Shakespeare, Pushkin, Van Gogh, Marx, Lifshitz, using references to the font compositions of the 1920s and 1960s.

The content of the exhibition is precisely characterized by the author quotations chosen by the author from «The Bronze Horseman»:

«The awful period was that»

«On Petrograd, sunk into darkness,
November breathed with fall cold’s harshness»

«And the wind blew with sadly wailing»

«And a great sadness
Embraced his soul in that night»

«And there he feared
Not his own death»

«There wreckage swam, there wailed a tempest»

«Would give him the unknown message,
As if a letter, sealed to bear»

«Alas! His agitated mind,
Against the immense woe’s billow
Didn’t stand untouchable»

«for his track
Was cast without choosing direction»

«He was quiet deafened and oppressed
By noise of inner agitation».

«He recollected his all flurry»

«Became clear
The strange thoughts, torturing his mind»

«A sense of terror was deforming
His features».
