NOWs: 5th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art
Under the title “Deep Inside” the 5th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art offers a long list of participating artists, and a meanding tour through barely lit corridors of its main venue, the Trekhgornaya Factory, one of Moscow’s oldest textile mills. The curatorial focus emphazises recent issues in ecology and economics and tries to tackle questions regarding the dangers presented by new technologies and social instability.
Berlin-based independent curator Nadim Samman explains in a statement, “Ours is the time of fissures, of prying apart, of penetration and cavities. We are climbing, or falling, ever deeper into a kind of black hole. As we do, it is perhaps to be expected that artists should be fascinated by opacities, by occultations, encryptions and conspiracies—the other side of the event horizon. Also, that they should rhapsodize about instability and polydimensionality. Deep Inside is a view from the chasm.
