The Museum of Modern Art Erarta ( Vasilievsky ostrov, the 29th line,2A) presents a new exhibition «A body as a landscape» of sculptural works of Jorge Marina «A body as a landscape» .
The Mexican sculptor brings up an eternal subject of a human figure which is the most important constant in the equations of history of art.
Today we perceive a body rather as a certain space, rather than as object: it is represented an overall picture of human sufferings, its synthesis and memory. Thus, the human figure narrates to us about formation of the mankind, and a body as a whole, in itself, eventually, is no more than a simply landscape.
Collection of Marina's figures – the courageous creative act. The author represents the person in a dynamic situation when the unique existing balance consists in its inner self.
The exposition will be opened till the 2nd of December from 10 am till 10 pm every day except Tuesday.
