Pavel Pepperstein - Flags & Flowers

Until Dec 20 03

For his first solo exhibition in the UK, Russian artist Pavel Pepperstein presents a series of 18 watercolours on paper.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, many Russian artists were seduced by western mass culture. In opposition to the new influences Pepperstein co-founded the ‘Inspection Medical Hermeneutics’ (*1987). “The artistic agenda of Pepperstein and Medical Hermeneutics basically consists of artificially creating a subculture that looks as if it were just about to explode the boundaries of its self contained and exclusive seclusion.”

Pepperstein writes that the soul of all things lie outside the things themselves, as in an ancient Russian fairy tale, in which the life force of the hero, Kaschtschej, is preserved in an egg that is concealed somewhere outside his body. In order to find and kill Kaschtschej, one must find the egg, but the search for the egg always leads farther and farther away from Kaschtschej himself. Correspondingly, the meaning of a picture or a text is not found within but somewhere outside.

Pavel Pepperstein lives and works in Moscow. His work is currently exhibited in the Berlin / Moscow exhibition in the Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin. His most recent solo exhibitions were at the Kunsthaus Zug, Switzerland and the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Germany. He was participating in group exhibitions and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany, the Kunsthaus Zug and the Valencia Biennale.
