Garage Museum of Contemporary Art presents an exhibition by Russian artist, writer, musician, and art theorist Pavel Pepperstein (b. 1966, Moscow).
Introduced to the circle of Moscow Conceptualists as a child, since the beginning of his career Pepperstein has been one of the most prolific mythmakers in Russian contemporary art. He is an inventor of systems, universes, languages, cities, and political projects. Pepperstein’s solo exhibition at Garage reviews the key myths he has created since the 1970s: from imaginary countries for which he has developed detailed maps and national symbols to ecstatic or, on the contrary, ultra-logical visions of the future; from religions, cults, beliefs, and rituals to alternative realities that exist in parallel dimensions and modalities.
For The Human as a Frame for the Landscape, Pepperstein will produce around twenty new works including drawings, videos, and installations. The first volume of his memoirs will be published to mark the exhibition.
