LONDON.- A special project of the Sixth Moscow Biennale, Peripheral Visions is a solo exhibition of the internationally celebrated, Moscow-based artist Olga Chernysheva, curated by GRAD director Elena Sudakova.

A leading figure in the artistic generation of 1990s Moscow, internationally acclaimed artist Olga Chernysheva documents the interactions of people and objects within the structures and spaces of contemporary Russia. In a solo exhibition at GRAD, Chernysheva focusses particularly on the experience of the individual in the neglected institutional spaces of abandoned museums and offices, transforming the gallery to mimic that of a forgotten museum with carefully constructed cases, display cabinets and a range of work in a variety of media.

Moscow is permeated with the relics and sentiments of its Soviet history, and Chernysheva’s scenes appear as if they are from another time, like artefacts of a contemporary era. Included in the exhibition are thirty new and unseen drawings and sculptural objects, interspersed with the videos and photographs that have brought Chernysheva international recognition in recent years.

Chernysheva’s practice developed in parallel with the seismic changes brought on by the decline of the Soviet Union. Eschewing social criticism or judgement, she continues to document the people and objects that she feels are ignored by mainstream narratives, and her powerful images record strangers unselfconsciously navigating the practices of everyday life. This exhibition highlights the power of an artistic ‘peripheral’ vision to broaden perception and bring attention to issues relegated to the margins of our everyday thought processes.

Born in 1962, Olga Chernysheva lives and works in Moscow. Chernysheva’s work has garnered international praise, with recent solo exhibitions including at Pace London, UK (2014); Kunsthalle Erfurt, Germany (2013); and BAK in Utrecht, Netherlands (2011). She has shown at Guggenheim, New York and Tate Modern, London as well as in international group exhibitions such as the Moscow Biennale (2009), Berlin Biennale (2010) and at the New Museum in New York (2011). Chernysheva represented Russia at the Venice Biennale in 2001 and her work was selected by Okwui Enwezor for the exhibition All the World's Futures at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.

Peripheral Visions Onstage
In conjunction with the exhibition, GRAD will host a series of documentary theatre performances from the UK, Russia and Bulgaria that complement the themes of the installation. Curated by Molly Flynn, the programme includes comedic and satirical works which address themes of immigration, social inequality and civic injustice across post-Socialist spaces. Included are performances by London-based experimental theatre collective Molodyi Teatr, Russian performer Talgat Batalov and Sofia-based company Theatre Replika.
