Artist and galeristka Aidan Salakhova has offered to host social media reproductions of classic works of Nude. And users don’t have to wait long. On the ribbon, then there were Three naked boy” Alexander Ivanov, “the Sleeping girl” Zinaida Serebryakova, “bathing the red horse” Kuzma Petrov — Vodkin, Midday (Son) Alexander Deineka…
-How came the idea to launch such a flash mob?
Decided to arrange such a cultural enlightenment, educational project for Senator Elena Mizulina and other officials, which few go to museums, to ensure that they are a little different from works of art from pornography.
-Who supported you in this endeavor?
We came up with this flash mob with producer Alex Side. We were supported by the whole artistic community of the country. If you view the tape in social networks, then make sure that our flash mob was massive.
In 1989, when we in the Soviet Union opened the first gallery of the brightest photographers of the twentieth century, Helmut Newton, no scandals about the nudity was not. As no one has previously outraged, seeing the works of Soviet artists who depicted Nude teenagers. What is happening with the society, I do not understand.
-How can we explain the reaction of this rejection?
-Dropping the level of culture and education in the country. People don’t go to museums, do not understand the difference between naked body, removed the great master and pornography. Just can’t understand that line. In any case, the artistic value of the works should be determined by the critics, not bloggers or some public figures.
-Get some feedback?
-There are negative reviews, but the vast majority of users of the networks we support. Such a number of likes and shares, I have never seen.
