"Danger! Museum"

Vladimir Dubossarsky e Alexander Vinogradov.
Danger! Museum, Glory to the Titans of Renaissance, 2009.
Óleo s/ tela, 294 cm х 389 cm.
"As an institution, the art museum accumulates a large amount of powerful energy from various dynamic and creative spirits, which it then shares with the audience. Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexander Vinogradov reveal the secret life of an imaginary museum hidden from the viewer's eye. Renaissance, avant-garde and mass-media images are synthesized in the monumental paintings created for this project. The texture of large canvases and the smell of oil are still regarded as essential attributes of the Old Masters, which refer to the heritage of Raphael, Tintoretto, Durer, Veronese, da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt and many other great masters. The audience, however, should be prepared for something unexpected. While they are looking at the paintings, the paintings are observing them. Thus, the viewer becomes a part of the installation. The museum is not a safe place for the audience anymore. We are constantly being watched, even in the quiet and cool exhibition halls. The relationship between art and the audience becomes a crucial part of the project, no less important than the paintings themselves. This dynamic interaction provides food for the artists' further projects and research." [Danger! Museum Press Release]
