About Empire and Beauty
Empire and Beauty shows the sinister and cold aspects of the identity of the imperial system as well as the disconnect between the official ideals and everyday reality of the subjects of the Soviet Union.
The exhibition project ?Empire and Beauty? is expressing and presenting imperialism from a number of perspectives. It shows the fascinating, the compelling and the fantastic effects of empire. At the same time, each painting captures how imperialism also presupposes the suppression of individualism and particularism. Thus, most of the paintings have a somber undertone hat contrasts with the monumental motifs.
The paintings narrates a story of the Soviet Union as an empire that has been. The Empire of the past. Of a Great Power, its ideals and its dark sides, of a past that still reaches into the future. It explores the contrasts and delusions and unmasks how the Soviet Empire constructed a narrative of pursuing beautiful ideals, portrays it all from happiness and beauty to death and destruction. The focus is on the beauty and the horror and what stem from that paradox
