Poetics of Locality

Organized by Glaz Gallery
Location: Glaz Gallery

Vladimir Kurashov. From the series Poetics of Locality. 2010. Gelatin silver print. 24 × 24 cm. Сourtesy: Glaz Gallery, Moscow

The main part of exposition is a series of photographs, aestheticizing the banal local scenery of Moscow and its vicinities. Another part of the exhibition is an exploration of accidentally urbanized space. Those two subjects create a peculiar synthesis of the first two—pastoral sceneries merge with looking intently into the urban environment and take on a new life of a panoramic photograph.
