Join us for an exclusive tour of our current exhibition ‘In Paradise’ with Margarita Gluzberg, the artist behind the show. We will explore the exhibition behind the scenes and engage with the new series of large-scale drawings, occupying the central space of Pushkin House, which the artist calls ‘cinema experiments’.
Made during the night, these are constructed by projecting ‘Stalker’ directly onto sheets of paper and ‘recording’ the moving image in real time as pencil marks. Different parts of the film are focused on, and what emerges are complex abstract works that meditate on the film’s structure and become visual testimony to the artist’s own emotional/inner landscapes in the action of making.
Born in Moscow in 1968, Margarita Gluzberg left the Soviet Union in 1979, and now lives and works in London. She studied at Oxford and the Royal College of Art. Her practice ranges from painting and drawing, to performance, sound installation and slide projection.
