On 28 February, Pavel Pepperstein’s exhibition The Human as a Frame for the Landscape will open at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art. The artist created 20 new works, including graphics, videos and installations, especially for the event. The project’s curator is Yekaterina Inozemtseva.
Drawings and albums that Pepperstein created as a teenager will be exhibited for the first time. The exhibition design is in the form of a sequence of rooms, each presenting a “landscape system.” For example, one room is a Library, packed solely with books created by Pepperstein. The books won’t open and only the spines are visible.
