St. Petersburg,

Ligovsky pr. 73, 4th floor

T: +7 812 322 4223

The so-called Saint Petersburg myth, created in the 19th century by Alexander Pushkin and Nikolai Gogol, was later developed by the poets Andrei Bely, Alexander Blok, Korney Chukovsky, Samuil Marshak, the “OBERIU” group (Daniil Kharms and Alexander Vvedensky) and others. St. Petersburg fantasy gave rise to absurdist images of dead old women and city officials, noses that walk on their own, as well as to characters known to every Soviet child — Moidodyr, Tarakanische, an absent-minded guy from Basseinaya street. 

The collection of the Sergei Kuryokhin CCA contains works by artists who embody contemporary St. Petersburg mythology. Cosmonauts and snowmen, elephants and dwarfs, doctors and musicians — these mysterious entities continue the traditions of the “Petersburg devilry”, while simultaneously creating a new look for historical characters and contemporaries.
