Gallery 21 and the collector Alexander Mironov submit the exhibition project „Own Time”. Within the project the collector Alexander Mironov and the gallery owner Ksenia Podoynitsyna conduct an art market research, speculating about the principles of formation of a private collection.
„Own time” is the term of the theory of relativity which means time measured by the hours fastened to a body and moving together with him. The identity of the collector can be considered similar measuring base in the system of development of art: being in process, connected to this process, the collector is one of the most objective observers and, somewhat, he becomes the zero center, a reference point concerning which there is his own vision of art and market changes.
Ksenia Podoynitsyna, founder of Gallery 21: „The gallery owner and the collector always the first, long before museum institutions, really „see” the artist and seek to support him on his development path. For this reason, in collections and at an exhibition with famous masters, also young perspective authors on whom Alexander Mironov as the collector, and I as the gallery owner, have relied are presented”.
Abstract artists Leonid Borisov and Alexander Pankin adjoin in an exposition with Oleg Lang, Bob Koshelokhov and the main dark underground expressionist Nikolay Nasedkin. „The boy playing with water” Sergey Shutov, tamper painting by Tasya Korotkova, Konstantin Batynkov and Evgeny Chubarov's graphic arts and also several versatile objects are united not by only the exposition decision, but more importantly, by the collector's and gallery owner's common vision.
Alexander Mironov, collector: „We urge the audience to look at an exposition from representatives' of future generations perspetive and to assess the level of interest in their search and discoveries in many years later”.
