 "Pavel Peppershtein. A Suprematist Study of Ancient Greek Myths". Cycle reproduction

 June 2-14


The paintings, drawings and installations of Pavel Pepperstein were exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, including the Louvre, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the State Tretyakov Gallery and the Russian Museum. “A Suprematist Study of Ancient Greek Myths” was presented for the first time in Paris in 2010.

The cycle consists of 14 works, which retell famous ancient Greek myths familiar to everyone since childhood in suprematism language, and antiquity cosmogony collides with Russian cosmism. Full harmony of Greek mythology falls under the pressure of avant-garde thirst of the Universe reorganization; art of “a new era” refers to the origins of European civilization.      

Pavel Pepperstein is a famous Russian critic, art theorist, writer (books “An Old Man’s Diet”, “The Mythological Love of Castes”, “Spring”, “A Prague Night” and etc.). He is one of the founders of the ideology of “Medical Hermeneutics” and the “psychedelic realism”. In 2014 Pepperstein was awarded the Kandinsky Prize for his “Holy Politics” project.

Solo exhibitions of the artist took place in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Great Britain, Hungary, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, China, Norway, the USA, Finland, France, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Sweden.
