mukhin_iBorn in 1961 in Moscow. Exhibitions: “Photography from the collection” the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1998), “Moscow – Paris” (2002-2003), the New version of the exposition “XXth Century Art” (Part I) the State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow (2006), “Sots-Art. Political Art in Russia”, the State Tretyakov Gallery. The 2nd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2007) and others.

I spent a few days amongst some wonderful people. To the question – where are you from, it was important for them to hear from me NAMELY: “I am from HIMKI-HOVRINO” they were called: OTRADNOE, ODINTSOVO, VESHNYAKI, PROSPEKT MIRA, BROTHER in SAMARA, RESTAURANT in BIRYULEVO,  4 YEARS worked in ROSTOV REGION, PECHATNIKI, RELATIVES in ROSTOV, SON in VORONEZH, RELATIVES in KRASNODAR REGION, 2 YEARS in ARMY in LYUBERTSI and so on and so forth.

It happened that I went to Georgia by invitation of my old friend, who had married a Georgian woman. The chance to be in different places of the Republic arose. Probably, all those, who have been there at different times, have experienced for themselves what the words “guest” and “hospitality” mean. It is harder to find more open people anywhere today. I was amazed by the local radio station, to which people sent – old Russian love songs – in their own rendition, to the guitar or a soundtrack – it was so candid.

I was somewhat confused, it was clearly not in a restaurant style, like in a film I was looking at how people were silently standing up and, raising their glasses, were singing along to Tuhmanov’s music. Maybe at this moment something connected with WAR was ALREADY in the air? Continuous columns of trucks on the highway, conversations would suddenly touch this theme all the time, but ended in, THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN…

My last visit to Georgia was in July 2008, just a few days before the outbreak of the war between RUSSIA and GEORGIA.
