Alexandra Anikina, Lena Kolesnikova & Ekaterina Muromtseva - Crevices in Myth

Pushkin House is proud to present ‘Crevices in Myth’, an exhibition of three Russian artists reflecting on post-Soviet identities and the chasms caused by the differences between utopian thinking and reality.

Taking the theoretical framework of Alexandra Anikina’s (b. 1989, Kolomna) film Data Field as a starting point, the exhibition explores speculative visions of personal and collective histories, affected by intimately constructed rituals, somehow marking the 30th anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The projects of Elena Kolesnikova (b. 1984, Irkutsk) and Ekaterina Muromtseva (b.1990, Moscow) further position individual experiences of living within inert social spaces at the centre of contemporary cultural reflection.
