The exhibition by Vladimir Dubosarsky and Ales Kochevnik „Save as an image” will open on the 24th of April. Unique art objects – the result of collaboration of two artists will be presented at the exhibition. and in the Secret room there will be new paintings by Vladimir

This project is a new spiral in work of the artist. Vladimir continues to experiment with opportunities of painting as a medium, and in cooperation with Ales he changes habitual perception of painting as plane format, turning canvases into volume works, using his works as a material for creation of an objects.

Ales Kochevnik writes: „Works of art, even paintings, must have an extra function, some practical use. Canvas paintings are created with paints applied on any surface and in cases of the crisis moments when there is a lack of material and emotional, they can be used as a pattern; to sew toys and clothes. Pushing boundaries of the pictorial which becomes now not only visual, but also tactile, and gets a great connection with the viewer or the consumer in this way.

But each person still has the choice: to cut the painting or not to cut. And this is a private matter to solve whether the backpack, a bag or a toy is the same valuable object as a picture.”
