  • Catalogue Essay

    Vladimir Dubossarsky and Alexsander Vinogradov are designing heroism for the 21st century. Salvaging through the rubble of Russian mythology, Dubossarsky & Vinogradov are remixing folklore for the next generation. Spin-doctoring a new glasnost: a true power-for-the-people type of propaganda. Sampling from every fad in the book, Dubossarsky and Vinogradov piece together black market Paradise. Social Realism for sale: more glamorous than ever, a cut above the rest. Gone are the government subsidized dreams of happy factory workers and humble role models. Dubossarsky & Vinogradov get to the heart of desires of The People, dishing out fantasia - the real stuff of popular interest. There is a little bit of what you’ve always hoped for in Dubossarsky and Vinogradov’s paradise paintings. The tranquil mythology of frolicking nymphs, felicitous imps of the wood and field, lifted straight from the pages of smutty magazines. Dubossarsky and Vinogradov’s pixies are all real-life…As cows and geese look on, you realize these scenes are more than voyeuristic spectacle. They are portrayals of national pride, red-blooded blue-collar desire.
    P. Ellis, From Russia With Love, Vladimir Dubbossarsky & Alexsander Vinogradov, Lucca, 2000
