    Timur Novikov & Joseph Brodsky. Horizons

    £10.00

    Horizons features unpublished dialogue between leading figure of the St Petersburg underground art scene, Timur Novikov, and eminent Russian poet and  Nobel Prize winner, Joseph Brodsky. Their meeting in Amsterdam in 1993 (on the occasion of Novikov’s retrospective exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum) resulted in a fascinating and erudite exchange, reflecting a reciprocal network of cultural and autobiographical references to St Petersburg as a city “on the edge” – an intersection where Western and Eastern cultural traditions met. The book pairs poems by Joseph Brodsky with textiles and silkscreens by Timur Novikov. Edited by Dominik Czechowski, curator of the Horizons exhibition.

     



  • Timur_Marine_Sun

    Timur Novikov. Sunrise over the Sea. 1989-2005

    £1,000.00

    Novikov revisits the Russian folk motifs in the style of his textile pieces by placing small iconic symbols (purposefully generalised, reduced and simplistic images) in large fields of flat, often bright, colour. His method of re-arranging, altering and proposing new semantic representation, use of symmetry and a horizontal (more rarely diagonal), division of space, became the new art language, adapting a three-dimensional world onto a flat surface, in a manner resonant of modern computer graphics or ancient hieroglyphics. Made during the perestroika years, the Horizons series reflects the youthful and optimistic spirit of the times whilst demonstrating the artist’s penchant for open perspectives – new possibilities of imagination and vision, the enlarged horizon, the greater hope.
