A hoaxproject. Television sets
A TV-set might be one of the greatest inventions of the 20-th century. It became a real family member, a part of our life, the escape from loneliness, one can’t imagine any feast or holiday without it, whether we like it or not. A TV-set is the most exact imprint of the time and of ourselves. That’s what my project is about. Here you will find a part of the collection belonging to the painter Alexander Lavrov. The exhibits have been collected for 25 years and are a wonderful collection of rarities with their amazing, sometimes even mystical stories. The “Orfeus”, The “Zvezda”, The “Zhiguli”, The “ Leningrad”, The “ Ob”, made in 1951, An individual TV receiver.

The images on the televisions correspond to the times of their production. The exhibition took place in Staroyarmarochny cathedral at the Nizhny Novgorod Fair, where Alexander Popov lived and worked every summer from 1889 to 1899.
