Alisa Yoffe "What's the Address?"
In November 2019, 9B Gallery invited Alisa Yoffe to the residence for a month. The exhibition "What's the Address?" was the result of the artist's life and work in Nizhny Novgorod on the space of the FUTURO gallery. The project was implemented with the support of the textile brand The.DOT.Home, the Nebo shopping center and the Empire of Dreams cinema chain.

Alisa Yoffe: "I continue my nomadic movement. Now I am in Nizhny Novgorod. The Futuro Gallery is located in a 19th century mansion. The gallery's corridor is blocked by two colliding pictures of a BMW car. In the first picture I am driving, in the second I am a passenger.

The viewer is forced to go into the white room. The windows are obscured by a painting depicting a restaurant, in the interior of which there is a painting "Gypsies" attributed to Jacques Callot. From the room, the viewer enters the main hall of the gallery with a double row of windows and traces of fire on the walls. The installation in this room consists of canvases of the same size. The first is a canvas-veil stretched over a concert farm. A broken face is painted on it. In the center of the hall, a canvas of tarpaulin is thrown to the floor. It features a Turkish carpet inspired by the Museum of Western Asia in Berlin.

A roll of four canvas canvases bent in half is suspended from the ceiling on a rope and symbolizes the sculpture. From the main hall, the viewer sees the second of the colliding paintings in the corridor, namely the one where I am the passenger "
