Larisa Zvezdochetova

ZvezdochetovaHas had solo exhibitions in Moscow, Ukraine and Germany. Participated in the Venice Biennale (1990), the Cetinje Biennale (1996, 1998), the Paris Biennale (2005) and in special projects for the 1st and 2nd Moscow Biennales (2005, 2007), among others. Works included in the collections of the Tretyakov and the RussianMuseum, as well as museums in Germany, France and the United States, and private collections in Russia and abroad.

Zvezdochetova’s Missing Links consists of 10 large canvases where the artist rethinks the forgotten expressive means of painterly language and the aesthetics of the late 1980s, when the inner connections of the stable world started to fall apart quickly and irreversibly. We are reminded of the impending ’90s by Zvezdochetova’s bold use of color and acidic, Lynchian visuals. The artist’s attention centers on lonely people in an artificial space. Zvezdochetova subtly indicates that something important is missing. Her painting confront the viewer with unsettling questions: behind each image we can sense a story that intrigues us but slips away without giving an answer. We want to solve the mystery, but too many connections are missing. Could the solution lie in the nomadic characters who wander from one painting to another? Could the Picasso drawing of archetypal traveler Don Quixote, a work that Zvezdochetova references here, be the key to the series? Or should we look to the landscape surrounding the beach? Some paintings come in pairs, as if they are offering a plot in its development — Selina and The Dead Butterfly, Three Sisters and Liliputin. This suggests that a solution is near, a feeling intensified by vivid color. Zvezdochetova’s work forces viewers to confront their own confusion, to make them think about the fundamentally incomplete nature of our cognition. Missing Links is a project about the self-awareness of modern man.
