CYLAND 2013 VENICE BIENNALE
CAPITAL OF NOWHERE is a group art project dedicated to the experience of living in a changing landscape created by the media civilization. It is a traveling project with the work of Russian, mainly St. Petersburg artists in its core. However, the concept of the project is versatile, it suggests reflection of the time and place of the show, so it can include works of foreign artists, especially local.
Today’s city today is an ever-updating screen where commercials mix up with politics, futuristic fantasies mix up with history and documents mix up with fiction. The reality of time and place disappears. Mutation of the familiar urban environment is perceived as a physical, mental and moral wound that every artist contrasts with his own act of creation, compensation, substitution.
