17 – 28 января 2017

Small hall
Opening — 17 January at 18:00

In Russian language the word «impress», after removing the latin prefix «im» is transformed into a noun «press» — «pressure», «compression» and / or «change» and in the professional usage is used as a «vise» or «clamp». With a non-critical difference of interpretation, we can see that the fixation and the pressure remain unchanged, as signs of tactile effects on the subject. At the same time there is a familiar and elusive cognate word «impression». The ongoing controversy surrounding the origin of the Shroud of Turin reflect the semantic conflict: to take any phenomenon and believe, it is important to feel an imprint, a trace of what happened in the material form. I remember the phrase: «I will not believe unless I see it with my own eyes.»
In the project I explore the phenomenon of track of «the light» as the physical phenomenon and a spiritual value in the culture.







The exhibition includes several groups of objects:
— Inverted picture of a lying man, I transfer onto the fabric using analog printing technology, thus creating a pseudo-imprint of a man’s presence.
— After I destroy the result, turning the fabric into separated threads.
