Syntax Gallery

Moscow - Russian Federation

45 cm

Moscow From 1 January to 1 February 2020

Presentation
On December 20th Syntax gallery will present a new exhibition by Belorusian artist Andrey Anro - “45 cm”. In his paintings, Andrey Anro, a photographer in earlier life, reimagines the collective memory through the photo and video documentation. The new work series explores the transformation of a person's boundaries of the intimate space connected with the widespread use of personal photos and videos in social networks.

45 cm is the boundary between the person’s intimate and private zones which if broken causes discomfort and uneasiness.

At the same time, with the advent of the internet, the personal, social and public domains can now intersect which lets the curious anonymously have a closer look at the intimate space, for example through home erotica photos. And if the anonymous faces are lost in the sea of information, then the intimate life of celebrities influences the public life, as the situation of Katy Hill showed – the democrat who won in the elections for the House of Representatives of the USA, and whose private photos were leaked to the media led to a change in the political history of the 25th district.

45 cm is a series of works exploring the theme of the personal space within the public space. The author works with photo and video materials of a sexual theme available on the internet and studies the culture of eros, sex icons and scandals.

Andrey Anro (born 1987 Smargon, Belarus) artist, photographer. Lives and works in Smargon / Minsk, Belarus. In 2007 he graduated MMT L.B. Krasina (Moscow, Russia), speciality "Advertising".

From 2007 to 2012 Anro engaged in photography, takes a series of "Dissomnia" where the artist reinterprets Belarusian folklore.
Since 2013 Anro begins to engage in painting, creates a series «The Lost», where portraits of missing people were used as the material for work. Then the artist starts to work for project «Face in Shadow», where he uses political images in the prism of mythology and visualizes them using figurative painting. In 2015 he created a series of graphic works "The New World", the "The New World" magazine’s pages (the magazine of the late 80's) were used at the basic of it.
