Visitors, art experts, architects, and artists always have tonnes of questions about the meaning behind a particular exhibition. The questions asked are determined by professional vision, emotional perception, and personal taste. But it is rare for people to wonder what it was that inspired the exhibition creators, what influenced the idea, or how much energy, time, and emotion went into it. This remains behind the scenes.
But starting today, and until the end of the Stillness. Russian Classical Sculpture from Shubin to Maytveyev exhibition, visitors to Manege will be treated to a joint documentary project in photographs, compiled by the Tsirkul studio and photographer Anna Skudar.
The exhibition (Count on me)down, housed on Manege’s ground floor, tells the story of the final days of preparation for the Stillness exhibition. What was it like building the exhibition in the last days before opening, when the various approaches to creating the architectural images led to the involvement of people from spheres of activity with almost no overlap at all? What unified all members of the team was their sacred, sensitive, and reverential attitude towards the central figures in the exhibition – the statues. The inspiration that enveloped each and every one of the participants in the count on me project like magic was the key to making this complex inter-museum project a reality.
