Moscow : Max Sher & Jegor Zaika

Preview

The exhibition’s Russian title – Vid na zhitelstvo – technically means ‘a residence permit for immigrants’ but the word vid may also mean ‘view’ or ‘perspective’, which gives the title a second meaning – ‘a view on living’. The exhibition encompassing work by renowned contemporary Russian photographers Max Sher and Jegor Zaika includes 120 photographs, video and an installation. This project is a reflection on ethical explorations pursued by artists who often opt for inner emigration refusing to make socio-political judgments about the surrounding world. What they get as a result is a ‘transit zone’, a space of semantic and ethical semi-emptiness where the cultural signs and codes of the immediate present appear as the only possibility to feel and define the boundaries of one’s own identity.
