COLUMBARIUM (Tribute to the Soviet Underground)
Series of 12 paintings (sized 30x40, oil, canvas)
‘In her project ‘Columbarium (Tribute to the Soviet Underground)’, Ilmira Bolotyan places flowers and other undertaker’s properties into the frames that resemble backboards of the canvases. [...] All of the mentioned and not mentioned works reveal the ability to correlate the scope of conception, medium choice and physical outcome so that the input will eventually find its output’.
Valentin Dyakonov, ‘Color of knowledge’ // ‘Kommersant’, issue 210, 15.11.13
The series is the artist’s answer to the underground culture of the last decades, where each niche metaphorizes disguised values of the alternative cultural movement.
