"I work with horror aesthetics, creating abstract compositions from biolomorphic textures, entropic plots and surreal half-formed objects. My work describes the disintegration of the surrounding world due to changes in human perception through the clipping of consciousness and scrolling or simply the surrounding dilapidation of things. I descend into the chthonic palaces of the underground worlds where the ancient gods splinter and rot into oil."

Friends, starting from 12 September, a new resident has been working at 9B Gallery. Artist Ivan Gorshkov is engaged in understanding the cultural codes of our time, calling this process "the search for a crystal of the purest craze."

He considers endless rework ("find and improve") to be the basis of his artistic strategy. An important part of this strategy is also the search for successful coincidences, building a chain of circumstances necessary for a new situation at work ("lucky coincidence generator").

Ivan Gorshkov was born in 1986 in Voronezh. Graduated from Voronezh State Pedagogical University, Faculty of Art Education. He was the founder of the Voronezh Center for Contemporary Art from 2009 to 2018. He was a fellow of the Garage Museum grant program for artists working in the field of contemporary art.

Presentation of Igor Ponosov's art project "Cartography of the fence"

On 7 August 18.00 in 9B Gallery there will be a presentation of the project "Cartography of the Fence" by artist, curator and researcher Igor Ponosov (Moscow), a participant in the city art residency program initiated by the Center 800 ANO.

Interacting with the urban context and studying it, Igor Ponosov strives to determine the place of man in urbanized space, poetically comprehends the borders, fences and barriers that surround us. During his stay at the art residency, the artist continues this work: he focuses on a visual study of the typical reinforced concrete fence "PO-2" and ironically interprets the Soviet design of the familiar window bars.

In 9B Gallery Igor Ponosov will present two art series that he created during his month-long stay in Nizhny Novgorod.

Igor Ponosov, artist, researcher, curator:
"The starting point of my research was Nizhny Novgorod and its outskirts, I also visited the cities of the region - Arzamas, Bor and Dzerzhinsk. In each of them, I took photographs of the current state of the "PO-2" fences in order to create from these frames an idea of the existence and use of this infrastructure facility today. I visualized the collective image of the fence and its functions in the post-Soviet city in the form of a photo collage, the elements of which relate to different places and cities of the Nizhny Novgorod region.

In the second series, which will be presented in the gallery, I continue to rethink the design of Soviet window grilles: I deconstruct familiar utilitarian objects in the course of a postmodern game, swapping the design elements from which they are composed and presenting them in a new combination that gives rise to new meanings."

Discussion on participatory practices in street art at the Arsenal on 2 August at 7 p. m.

A series of public events with participants of the Nizhny Novgorod region art residency program will be held at the Arsenal from 2 to 23 August. The first meeting will be held by artist, street art theorist and resident of Gallery 9B Igor Ponosov, head of the Arsenal's creative projects department and urban researcher Alexander Kuritsyn and architect, director of the Institute for the Development of the Urban Environment of the Nizhny Novgorod Region Daria Shorina.

Participatory or participatory street art abandons the imagery inherent in street art in favor of socially oriented collective practices. Since the beginning of the 2010s, street artists around the world have increasingly chosen this practice in order to develop new strategies in street art and determine other trajectories for its development. By actively involving the viewer in the process, a street piece becomes not just a collective work and happening, but a kind of "social sculpture", a cast of social connections and relationships.

We are waiting for you on 2 August at 19:00 at the Mediatheque (left wing of the Arsenal, 1st floor). Free admission.

Opening of the exhibition by Irina Drozd "Bedtime Tales"

9B Gallery with the support of the online art gallery ArtZip invites you on March 10 at 18.00 to the opening of Irina Drozd's solo exhibition "Bedtime Tales". The project will present a series of works in which the world of fantastic creatures is intertwined with reality, reality and dreams. Referring to folklore, which her grandmother introduced her to in childhood, the artist says that fairy tales are far from unambiguous: they provoke fear, but at the same time they teach to cope with it, lay the foundation for the psyche in childhood, explaining what is good and what such a bad thing, demonstrating the victory of good over evil. Fairy tales are often based on the desire of a person to possess something that is out of control of the real world - find the feather of the Firebird, catch the fairy, tame the devil of the sea. Go there, I don't know where, bring something, I don't know what. Her fabulous and fantastic characters are an allegory of what people can eat figuratively and in fact, taking possession of the unprecedented and incredible. Their images refer to medieval chimeras, metaphorically embodying human passions with their bizarre appearance.

Against the backdrop of an all-consuming desire for possession and power, painted in dark colors in fairy tales, the artist asks: how can a person who in childhood understood what is white and what is black transgress humanistic ideals when he becomes an adult? It is so important not to lose your inner child, naivety, clumsiness, sincerity and to discover a new world with delight.

New Year's exhibition "Lights and Stars" opens on December 22

9B Gallery invites you on December 22 at 18.00 to the opening of a special festive project "Lights and Stars", in which Nizhny Novgorod authors took part. The exhibition will feature graphic works by three ideologically close artists - Anna Lageda, Olga Lageda and Mikhail Dutsev, who focus on the Russian landscape tradition, plein air practice and lyrical depiction of everyday life. The graphics will be complemented by spectacular three-dimensional objects by Olga Lageda, as well as ceramics by Daria Koryukalova and Sofia Pogudina.

The exhibition "Lights and Stars" is built as a visual essay, where the house caught in a snowstorm on a festive evening became the central image. The project was inspired by a scene from Boris Pasternak's novel "Doctor Zhivago", which is known from the poem "The Candle Was Burning". Winter landscapes, where a mysterious light from the windows of houses looms among the snows and blizzards, are replaced by images on the other side of the ice glass: lights are burning in garlands and chandeliers, a home paradise reigns - children's games, a holiday in the family circle, dates.

"Lights and Stars" is a mirage of a lone traveler in an icy desert, a dream of a better place where loved ones are waiting for him, children's laughter rings, a cat purrs and a flame crackles in the hearth.

We invite you to the exhibition opening of the team Bomse «Backdoor».

On November 3 at 18.00 9B Gallery invites you to the opening of the exhibition of the
Nizhny Novgorod team Bomse, which will present a series of paintings, graphics and
objects created specifically for the project.

The exhibition is a personal dedication of the team to video games of their childhood. The
artists belong to the millennium generation: they grew in the 2000s, a time of rapid growth
of digital culture in the country. Video games on computers and consoles filled with the
strongest impressions of the world of the post-Soviet child and, in many ways, shaped his
perception and taste. It is a diverse multi-genre, aesthetically rich world with original
mechanics, which has a comprehensive impact on artists. Hence their personal desire to
play the subject in an uncritical and somewhat nostalgic way.

The Bomse team has existed for more than 10 years. It belongs to the younger generation of
Nizhny Novgorod street-art. For the past few years, its members have combined street-art
practice with studio work. The team changed several times, five artists of the association
took part in this 9B Gallery project - Cema Bomse, Oper Bomse, Evsti Bomse, Skeap
Bomse, Ilya Atom.

Each member of the team has his own individual style and can both work on his own
projects as an independent creative unit, and participate in common projects. Mainly,
artists are united by place, street environment and friendship. Turning to the practices of
painting, graphics and sculpture and others, the members of the team retain brutality of
manners, experimental approach to materials, productiveness, harmoniously developing
creative language and techniques obtained in the street environment. Earlier personal
studio projects of the team were presented at the sites of Terminal A, Lazy Mike Gallery
and Museum of Street Art.

In crisis situations and times in the life of one person and society, the interest in the
supernatural intensifies. When all patterns are in question, the consolation may be the
hypothesis of some other level of regularity. Historians point out that, for example, modern
magic practices of attracting good luck in their seemingly illogical ways are fragments of
an agreed set of mythological notions about the world. In this case, they remain for us
strange and incomprehensible, radiating in their fragmentation something fascinating and

The project «Below the cemetery, above the sun» reflects the inherent in man even in the
most desperate situations hope for happiness and the desire to oppose the feeling of
helplessness special secret tricks.

One of the images of the exhibition was the Old Believer legend about the city of Kitezh,
ostensibly gone into the lake to escape from the advancing enemy troops.

Opening of project «The Prank Was Successful» by LARKANDRE

«Palimpsests formed by the polar layers: «museum» painting and graffiti-tagged on top of
it are presented to the audience. However, the playing distance is replaced by the unusual
material persuasiveness of the artifact itself. One may think that the real results of the
intrusion into the walls of some picture gallery of the team of anonymous street «writers»,
which subjected to radical vandalism of the canvases from the collection, are exposed.

The young artist goes far beyond provocative gestures and declarations - he deliberately
complicates his task by following the path of both a classical master and a terrorist graffiti
or the author of popular network memes. Hence the effect of confusion, in which the guest
of the exhibition is immersed when acquainted with the works. «What is it at all? » «Where
did he find so many old paintings, and why did he ruin them? » «Is it a painting,
postgraffiti or post from the community of Flemish baroque lovers? » - questions of this
kind arise in many, and the very fact of their appearance speaks of one thing - the prank,
of course, succeeded».

New Resident at Gallery 9B

On February 1, a new resident will start working at Gallery 9B. We are pleased to introduce you to the young Moscow artist LARKANDRE. He studied at the Moscow Academy. Stroganov at the department of monumental and decorative painting. He participated in collective exhibitions in Moscow, in particular the Moscow International Biennale of Young Art (2018). Founder of the art group «Yes-no». Participated in VLADEY auctions. He was engaged in the restoration of sculptures in the pavilion «Kosmos» and the fountain «Kolos» at VDNH, as well as in the Income House of G. E. Broido.

The Rezident plans to create a series of paintings, combining antique subjects with modern graffiti. As the artist says, by blurring the lines between high art and street art, he seeks a new visual language. By deliberately committing an act of «vandalism», LARKANDRE gives it an artistic character and at the same time rethinks classical academic techniques and stories.

Friends! 9B Gallery is temporarily closed. Follow the announcements!

The project was the final result of the work of Andrey Berger in the art residence of Gallery 9B. This is a series of experimental collage works created on the basis of an artistic study of the urban environment of Nizhny Novgorod with its historical and architectural contrasts, unique geometry and landscape.

Ideologically, the artist connects this cycle with his work on the street. Over the past year, he has been engaged in partisan posting of copyright posters on city streets, observing the changes in works - natural destruction, painting, emerging tags, advertisements and announcements. Andrey sees in this spontaneous grassroots process a creative action, a plastic language that inspired him to create a series of studio works presented at Gallery 9B.

Art party
On May 28, we invite friends of the gallery to the art party. The reason for her is pleasant: our friend, artist Nastya Belaya is finishing the Nizhny Novgorod Art School and is preparing to continue her education in Moscow. She is a young aspiring author and as a support we are hosting a festive display of her art series entitled "The Train Has Left in a Different Direction", which echoes an ironic statement towards her non-academic style. The painting of Nastya Belaya embodies the delight of provocative contrasts in the spirit of pop art and fields of open flowers that break out of the outlined space. Graphic design, simplified interpretation of shapes and volumes, repetitive patterns, disruptions of natural color and deliberate naivety of plots that seem to have descended from the pages of children's books. The artist's world is a charming fantasy seamy side of everyday life, inhabited by eccentric characters, talkative objects and good-natured monsters.
