Seven visual artists interpret the imaginative world of Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky (1887-1950).


A group show of seven Russian and non-Russian visual artists based in the UK, interpret the imaginative world of Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky (1887-1950) using contemporary art language. The show is a response in a variety of media, including paintings, photography, video and interactive installations, to three remarkable short stories from Krzhizhanovsky’s Seven Stories (translated into English by Joanne Turnbull) -  “Runaway Fingers”(1922), “Quadraturin”(1926), and “The Unbitten Elbow”(1927)
