Exhibition Overview

Contemporary Russian artist Grisha Bruskin's new sculpture project H-Hour examines the myth of the enemy in very diverse manifestations: the hostile state, class enemy, enemy of the subconscious, 'the other' as enemy, time, chronos and death as enemies, the enemy of the human species, among others. His work explores how the trivial is made sacred, how strong the hypnotic power of art and the image in general really is, and how depiction can become a means and instrument for manipulating human consciousness.
