Prepared with the joint cooperation of the Ministry of Culture of the Moscow Region and the JART Gallery, the project will be presented on February 1 in the new Malevich Park and will be available for visitors until March 1. White Forest is a group project by Russian artists, the works of Grigory Orekhov, Alexei Luka and the Artistic Solitude art group (Irina Korina and Olga Petrunenko, the EliKuka duet, the Icing of Architects group) will appear in a snowy forest and complement the architecture of the park with its various geometric shapes and reflective mirror surfaces
Land art by Grigory Orekhov consists of a 250 meters long red carpet made of polypropylene, stretching in a snowy forest.
"Here, perspective becomes the artist's means of expression," critic Mikhail Sidlin writes about the work. "The new installation by Grigory Orekhov can be compared with the works of Eric Bulatov, however created not on a picturesque plane, but in Kazimir Malevich's park, which gives the work additional meaning — the author's departure into geometric abstraction, yet still remaining intact with reality."
Since ancient times, the red carpet has had a ceremonial meaning — the path of the winners. Since the time of Agamemnon, it has been spread before the leaders, attributing a divine spark to them. Walking along the red carpet in the park, visitors will try on the role of rulers, while still appreciating the landscape. The desire for fame, wealth, power is negligible compared to the greatness of the universe, — emphasizes the artist Grigory Orekhov.
