Yesterday, members of the SERB movement attacked Vasily Slonov's exhibition in the gallery at 11.12 at Winzavod. They sprayed an odorous liquid around the gallery, tore off part of the paintings from the walls and refused to give them to the exhibition organizers.
Facebook post
Gallery Director 11.12 Alexander Sharov said that the cost of the damaged works of Slonov is 20-25 thousand euros.
Later, one of the SERB activists Alexander Petrunko confirmed that members of this movement had spoiled the exhibition:
"We closed the exhibition. The artist made an offensive exhibition in relation to Putin, Gagarin, and others."

SERB activists are the very people who almost deprived Alexey Navalny of sight and tore off the plaque from the house of Boris Nemtsov. Last winter, they attacked the exhibition of photographer Jock Sturges in Moscow, one of them was even arrested for 8 days. But why don't Serbians like Vasily Slonov so much?
I'll show you now:
Here are some of the exhibits of the Heavenly Jerusalem exhibition:

"This is the artistic materialization of the author's thoughts about the fate of the world in general, and about the curve of the fate of Russian civilization, in particular.Exposition parable about imperishable ideals and professionalism of historical choice. Focusing and projection on the Russian mentality of the explosive mixture of the Sermon on the Mount of Christ and the moral imperative of Emanuel Kant. The author comes to the conclusion that the historical existence of any nation, any nation is not worth the “damn egg” if it does not storm the Heavenly Jerusalem! ”

“There is nothing more mystical than sounding than the phrase“ to act according to conscience. ”This means: do without a reason. There is always a reason to hit, steal, lie, ask those who sin professionally - they will have hundreds of reasons.
Russian pathos as an amazing ability to elevate shit to harmony, and reduce harmony to shit, literally by mood. It would be a dissonance everywhere, but we live in our Lukomorye: the people who first launched a man into space, but did not leave the toilets, did not see any particular contradictions here. "

But probably the main cause of the attack. This is a portrait of Putin, made by bleach on a padded jacket.

By the way, the gallery owner and the artist decided to continue the exhibition, including in it including damaged exhibits. But while it is closed: apparently, they are putting things in order.
These are the axes of Slonov, which I shot at last year’s Artistic Riot show in London.

And, of course, the most famous series of his works. Many Russians at one time were very upset by the exhibition of Elephants "Welcome! Sochi 2014".

The central figure of a series of paintings became angry Cheburashka.

Elephants claimed that "the project Welcome! Sochi-2014 was created to promote the brand of the Winter Olympics in Sochi in Europe, America and the rest of the far abroad."

But officials quickly closed it. Apparently, then the Elephants came into the view of various kinds of patriotic organizations.

The rejection of a different view of the surrounding reality arises from self-doubt. Patriots are not sure that they really love Russia. The government is not sure that it is legitimate enough and that it is doing everything right. None of them is sure that the people imposed from above are taken seriously. Therefore, there are lightning (and rather ridiculous) attempts to deal with dissent.
Of course, they will not bring any result.In addition to dividends to the artist in the form of a free advertising campaign, to which I gladly join.
