The Art Club D137 project, which is called Top of Europe Haute-Savoie, opens a new page in the activities of our club, which can now also be called the Haute Savoie Amateur Club. The project is dedicated not only to culture, but also to many other aspects of life in this wonderful region of France, which is the highest point of Europe not only due to its geographical features, but also to the most interesting history, cultural studies, nature and, of course, people. We fell in love with this land, and we will talk about it in the hope that you will discover it for yourself!
Arteem Magalashvili and Olga Osterberg about ‘Freedom from actuality’ by Sergey Sergeev”. St.Petersburg, Febrary 2020 – video.
In 2014 Art Club D137 published a catalog dedicated to Georgy Guryanov “My work of art is myself”
Art Club D137 in conjunction with the Arts Square Gallery presents Sergey Sergeev’s exhibition “Freedom from Actuality”. Sergeev is well-known Petersburg artist, participant in the non-conformism movement and one of the creators of the D137 gallery. In art, Sergeev developed the Palimpsest style, which combines layering, archaic and elements of symbolism, as well as the Captcha direction, the works of which are designed to determine the artificiality of the intellect of contemporaries who have forgotten how to understand the image and to enjoy contemplation.
The exhibition consists of both new works and the works of the Captcha project, which was shown four years ago at the Museum of Urban Sculpture in St. Petersburg, and on which the author continues to work to this day. The main goal is to present the painting “New Wave”, created by Sergeev specifically for Evgeny Kozlov’s “2x3m” collection, and which will go to Berlin after the exhibition.
A number of interesting events will be held during the exhibition:
15.02 at 5 p.m. – lecture by the famous journalist and film critic Mikhail Trofimenkov about the New Wave in French cinema.
22.02 – a meeting with Hannelore Fobo, where she will talk about the development of “2x3m” and why she believes that “2x3m” can become a brand of Russian art on the international art scene.
26.02 – evening dedicated to the memory of George Guryanov.
All events will be reported additionally.
The exhibition runs from February 13 to March 4 at
