    Grisha Bruskin: H-Hour
    Feb 12 2014 - Mar 15 2014
    Press Release

    The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of a solo exhibition of the work of Russian-born artist, Grisha Bruskin, which will take place from February 12 until March 15, 2014 entitled, H-Hour.

    The exhibition will consist of an environment of approximately forty bronze sculptures painted with white enamel, which were created from the years 2008 to 2012. These works were exhibited at the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow during the fall of 2012 and at the American University Museum during the spring of 2013. In 2012 Grisha Bruskin received the Kandinsky Prize- the most prestigious award for the achievement in contemporary visual arts.

    Grisha Bruskin's new sculpture project, H-Hour (2012) has no specific historical or geographical ties and examines the myth of the enemy in very diverse manifestations: the hostile stae, class enemy, enemy of the subconscious, "the other" as enemy, Time, Chronos and Death as enemies, the Enemy of the Human Species, and so on.

    In H-Hour the artist's concerns are how the trivial is made sacred, how strong the hypnotic power of art and the image in general really is, and how depiction can become a means and instrument for manipulating human consciousness.
