David Burdeny “A Bright Future”, new works from Russia

October 1, 2015 – October 25, 2015

Featured artists: David Burdeny

Opening night Sep 10th 6:00-9:00pm

Q&A Welcome

Dating Back to 1935, The Moscow and St. Petersburg Metro was one of the USSR’s most extravagant architectural projects. Under Stalin’s direction, the Architects were directed to introduce the concept of “svet” or light and “sveltloe budushchee”or a bright future. With their polished  marble walls, high vaulted ceilings and ornate chandeliers, the Metro stations have been likened to an “artificial underground sun”.This underground  paradise was to reminded its riders that Stalin and his party had delivered something substantial to the people in return for their sacrifices.

Burdeny  has themed the series around this notion showcasing his photographs of 20 of the metro stations and various Russian museums, palaces and theatre interiors. For this new series, the artist is working with esteemed writer and translator Rosamund Bartlett, highly regarded in academic circles for completing the latest and perhaps best translation of Anna Karenina (2014).
