19.10.2013 ANTON SELF-PORTRAIT ANTON SELF-PORTRAIT ANTON
- This exhibition is a close study of self-portraits by three artists: Anton Solomoukha, Anton S. Kandinsky and Anton Trofymov. All three artists originally lived and studied in Kyiv, Ukraine and moved to Paris (Solomoukha) and New York (Kandinsky and Trofymov).
Each artist had to re-define himself in a new city where he lives now. Each artist created a new oeuvre that made him successful in the West. But most importantly, each artist had changed his own image, had come up with a new “self-portrait” that showcases and documents the story of his success.
Is such self-portrait a camouflage, a shell behind which the artist remains fragile and vulnerable? Is it the way to show off how adaptive he became? Or is it a self-defining marketing campaign that enhances the artist’s portfolio, making him a supermodel, a ‘face’ of his own art.
Without doubt a strong image of the artist will occupy our minds sometimes more than artwork created by him. It will become indivisible from his works. Moreover, only those artists who have redefined themselves via new image in a newly found home will become successful here.
The exhibition will open on October 17, 2013 and will continue through October 31.
