Landscapes of the Future – The Venice Biennale Installation
At the common opening of the Düsseldorf-Cologne galleries, the Kewenig Galerie is showing drawn visions of landscapes by the Russian artist, Pavel Pepperstein. Born in 1966, he is one of the leading figures of the younger art scene in Moscow. Pepperstein's drawings came about in 2009 for the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale. His works on paper in water-colour show Utopias of future megalopolises, their architecture and monuments. He draws possible religious conceptions, technical developments, cultural trends, weather phenomena and political topics in a far-off future.
