Yelena Popova, Olga Grotova and Nika Neelova will be coming to Centrala Friday 3rd February to discuss their latest exhibition ‘Seventeen’ from 5-6pm in an Artist Talk.
As human lifespan keeps increasing, doubles of all the decades will occur. One could think of the ‘30s as the 2030’s or the 1930’s.
In 1917 there was a Russian revolution. Russians still refer to it as ‘The revolution of the year seventeen’, but from this year it will mean both 1917 and 2017.
Three artists in the show are drawn to this suggested doubling of history: a return to a fluctuating point in the past and reaching out to an illusive future. This suspended, circular, contemporary state of déjà vu gives rise to the idea of a reanimation of time.
