Discoverers (grandma hi, I am working at Fabrika)
On 13 October, Fabrika Centre for Creative Industries presents Dmitry Kadintsev's solo exhibition "Discoverers (Grandma hi, I am working at Fabrika)". This is the final project of the winner of the IX session of the Factory Workshops programme.
Previously, in his artistic practice Dmitry Kadintsev most often turned to painting. In his personal project "Discoverers" the artist works with a relatively new medium for him - installation, transferring the pictorial narrative of his paintings into three-dimensional space.
For the duration of the exhibition, the entire Art House hall will be transformed into a large-scale installation garden inhabited by animals, plants and anthropomorphic creatures. In the artist's paintings - landscapes, or scenes in the streets of cities, forests or parks - the human being is often integrated into the landscape so well that it often becomes invisible. The central character of the work may be plants or animals. In the installation, the artist uses the same technique, bringing natural processes and animals endowed with human qualities and thoughts to the forefront.
Who is the discoverer of what places and phenomena, for whom and for what purposes is the discovery made? The artist enquires about the appropriateness of such notions, about their inherently colonial nature, ignoring already existing ideas, places and laws.
