DESCRIPTION

The Nadja Brykina Gallery was founded in central Zurich in 2006 by Nadja Brykina. The repertoire focuses on Russian art from the second half of the 20th century up to present time.

The gallery represents the artists Marlen Spindler, Igor Vulokh, Vladimir Andreenkov, Alexei Kamensky, Yuri Zlotnikov, Valery Yurlov, Andrei Krasulin, Vladimir Soskiev as well as exponents of the younger generation, such as Mikhail Krunov and other artists. Their works are displayed across more than 800 square metres. A repertoire, which once was only loosely shown to the public outside the Soviet Union has now been made accessible to the Western world.

The spectrum of their works ranges from painting to illustrations; from graphic works to sculptural pieces. Many of these artists rank among the non-conformists. They lived in the Soviet Union under desperate circumstances. In their isolation, they followed their own artistic pursuit. They did not join the ruling party nor their official art (social realism) nor did they join the politicising underground. In exchange, they renounced to acceptance. They put up with deprivation, or worse, persecution. Their non-conformism was absolute and was addressed not only to the Soviet ideology but to all attempts to affect the artistic works. Even with the emergence of the Perestroika they did not adapt to the vogue of the art market and remained true to their own artistic pursuit instead.

After the Perestroika, their creations were acquired and exhibited by the most significant Russian museums. Nevertheless, their creativity has long been practically unknown by our local public.

All artists are dignified in retrospectives that depict their works of different periods. Since 1996, Nadja Häner-Brykina has been constantly releasing monographs, artists’ books and exhibition catalogues in four languages (German, English, French and Russian). Publications further include documentary films unravelling the artistic life of selected artists. The work exhibitions are complemented by photo exhibitions giving insight into their artistic world as well as cultural events, such as concerts and readings.

In August 2010 there was an opening of Nadja Brykina Gallery in Moscow. The opening exhibition "Logos and sketches by Marlen Spindler" was shown within Moscow International Biennale of Graphic Design, Golden Bee 9. With our Moscow branch we would like to emphasize our connection to the eastern European art world and Russian artists.
