The ART4 Museum presents the PERKINNALE - a group project created by the initiative of the
young artist Vova Perkin. Perkin is known for his vivid paintings, which ART4 already presented
at the artist personal exhibition, as well as at the COSMOSCOW contemporary art fair in 2018
This time, Perkin invited his colleagues from different generations to participate in the project,
filling all halls of the Museum with works in a single concept that allows the viewer to see the
colors of the world around him through the eyes of a baby who was born directly in the gardens
of Nikola Tesla. The space of ART4 will be divided into four pavilions - “Perfect Injection”,
“Natural Pollen-Gifts and Mushrooms”, “Tent of Ugara” and “Grand Hotel“ Marzhdanin ”, and
patrons will be the heroes of Perkinist mythology - Petrushka, Confectioner Pablo, Banana
Deputy and Agent .
“Perfect Injection” is an author’s formula developed by the curator of the pavilion Oslik Bou,
combining “brightness, scale, folly and ugar” in the paintings of Gena Zhuk, Dima Makonda,
Vova Perkin and Seryozha Fili.
In the pavilion of the Grand Hotel Marzhdanin, photographer Sergey Borisov, together with the
artist Vova Perkin, will present for the first time a series of works that will tell and show thirty-six
hotel rooms and their guests from parallel worlds.
The works of the artist Andrei Bartenev will share the pavilion “Natural Gifts-Pollen and
Mushrooms” with the debutants of “Perkinism” Lisa Plaksa and Dima Rae, which will present
graphics, paintings, embroidery, ceramics and Victor Goppe sculptures.
The program of the pavilion “Tent of Ugar” will become surprise for visitors to the exhibition and
is kept secret. The main slogan of this part of the exposition: “You may lose your face in ugar”.
Perkinnale is the world of the future, arising from the sexual and emotional connection of man
and machine, the exchange of human fuel Ugar and Folly for machine-serotonin utopia, the
ability to dissolve like a sugar lump in a hot mug of hyper-augmented reality.
