∆ Triangle Gallery is pleased to announce the second personal exhibition by Liudmila Konstantinova, (born in 1980, lives and works in Moscow)..
This time, the artist is exploring the question of pleasure, including the pleasure of visual arts. Do those with a wealth of cultural experience simply enjoy new works of art, or do they unconsciously try to find connections between the new works and old art, thereby killing the simple pleasure of enjoyment? Is it better to forget things easily so as to enjoy the art again and again? Why cannot the artist dust his or her works with glitter without fearing this would be seen as cheap? It may be cheap, but typing a text is hardly more expensive either, yet reading it can give you real pleasure, can't it? Liudmila Konstantinova has created an unexpected combination of her previous works, all of which offer an ironic view on different periods in the history of the arts and come together to form a life affirming composition under the motto, Down with shame!
Liudmila Konstantinova studied industrial architecture at the Moscow Architectural Institute. Also studied at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). For a long time was working for different magazines as an illustrator. From 2010 she is a memberof the "VGLAZ" (in the eye) art society. Works are in the collection of the Tretyakov gallery (Moscow), Saatchi gallery (London) as well as in private collections.
