For the «While eating» show, Fabrica CCI
Food not only serves as nutrition for the body but is also able to evoke feelings and memories. The artworks in this show develop the preparation and consumption of food in the context of the mundane and the festive, private and social, sacred and taboo, the eternal and the ephemeral. We invite every spectator to finish the Russian proverb «While eating...» her/his own way.
The work of Paul Solovyev, in fact a remake of the «Black Square» by Malevich, is an important study on the theme of the national identity and food as a sacred matter. The author poses a question: is it possible to repeat the phrase «God is not thrown down» 100 years after Malevich's Suprematism in the language of contemporary art and not to sink into the territory of didactics and platitude, and a make non-critical, unbiased and positive statement.
