Олег Калашнік «ENFANT TERRIBLE»

Category:

Oleg Kalashnik's exhibition "ENFANT TERRIBLE" will open on February 22 at 18:00.

Endless rows of soldiers will hide behind the walls of the center. The concrete space will turn into an abandoned playground — a portal to the artist's childhood school years.

A toy is not what it seems. It gives its owner power that the world does not know. Although this artifact of childhood disappears under the rubble of "adult things", in fact, it never loses its power. In various guises, it manifests itself as nostalgic memory or unconscious reproduction of experience. "The game never ends, because during your life you return to the childhood experiences. Some situations take you back to the memories of those times," says Natalia Ivanova, director of the YermilovCenter, about the exhibition concept.

Oleg Kalashnik turns to the iconic toy of his childhood — a soldier. He is an artist whose work is based on early and youthful memories. He focuses his artistic attention on individual children's myths.

"When I was little, a neighbor opposite was building a house. I took broken bricks from it and carved miniature bricks out of it — I wanted to build a small house for soldiers. Can you imagine? Broken brick, in which you cut the angles, and make even smaller bricks… ».

Oleg Kalashnik's soldier turns into a once-hidden children's box, where strange "treasures" have been preserved over time. It is like bricks in a boy's fantasy world, and an adult builds the myth of his childhood and seeks the meaning of his game.
