The Russian artist group AES+F was one of the artists representing Russia at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007 with the video installation “Last Riot”. As early as 2005, Ruzicska Gallery in Salzburg, Austria, realized a solo show with AES+F. Now, Ruzicska presents the whole cycle of works “Last Riot 2” in the spaces of the Max Gandolph Bibliothek in Salzburg: the video, 25 Collages, three Sculptures and 11 sketches on paper. There is also a monumental sculpture on display in front of Ruzicska’s gallery in Faistauergasse (see upcoming video of the opening of the exhibition “Fiat Lux” at the gallery). AES+F are Tatiana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovitch, Evgeny Svyatsky, and Vladimir Fridkes. Impessions from the opening, July 25, 2008.
The virtual world generated by the real world of the past twentieth century as the organism coming from a test-tube, expands, leaving its borders and grasping new zones, absorbs its founders and mutates in something absolutely new. In this new world the real wars look like a game on www.americasarmy.com, and prison tortures appear sadistic exercises of modern valkyrias. Technologies and materials transform the artificial environment and techniques into a fantasy landscape of the new epos. This paradise also is a mutated world with frozen time where all past epoch the neighbor with the future, where inhabitants lose their sex, and become closer to angels. The world, where any most severe, vague or erotic imagination is natural in the fake unsteady 3D perspective. The heroes of new epos have only one identity, the identity of the rebel of last riot. The last riot, where all are fighting against all and against themselves, where no difference exists any more between victim and aggressor, male and female. This world celebrates the end of ideology, history and ethic.
