Triangle Gallery is pleased to present in its space a joint project of Valery Chtak and
Kirill Kryuchkov “Two”, which was first introduced at the DSC Zarya in Vladivostok.
Curator Alice Bagdonayte
The artist fr om Vladivostok Kirill Kryuchkov (b. 1989) is primarily known for his work on
the street; fonts, inscriptions, layering, patches are found as painted on them
city walls, and in his easel works. Kryuchkova cares about nature and
ecology, he seeks to live in harmony with the Earth and the environment and reconciles
people with a difficult landscape of life, his work is characterized by humanistic
utopian scenes. Colored mosaics and drawings in the cityscape serve
“Landscaping”, switching gloomy urban landscapes to “improved” places
for life by playing with space and colored paint.
Valery Chtak (b. 1981), a prominent figure in the Moscow scene, works with monochrome
palette, combining images and text and turning to philosophy, philology and cultural
studies. Painting Chtaka applies to canvases, found objects and walls; in his
works include quotes, aphorisms, repetitive images, text puzzles and
semantic units in different languages. Any space created by Chtak
acquires a complex volume in which the disparate elements suddenly appear as parts
one complex immersive cipher. For Chtak, this is his second visit to Vladivostok, where he
already did a site-specific exhibition-installation “Crab inside” as part of the residence in
Zare in 2016.

Burrio. We live in a world where signs, symbols and images incline us towards certain
actions are commercialized. All of us are destined to certain routes and
"Communication zone". When the architecture of life does not provide for us to exit with
certain routes, despite the development of technical means of communication, our
opportunities for communication are limited. So, beyond certain
circumstances, artists from different parts of the continent would never have met and never
would join in the conversation.
The objective of this project is to pave new ways for communication and to bring out all sides of this.
conversation beyond the boundaries prescribed by the circumstances. Signs, symbols, images and
emblems can also facilitate communication and sharing of experience with others. Wh ere
art serves as a pretext for dialogue, a reason for changing our attitude towards life,
we are talking not only about the conversation of some "two", but about the inclusion of all the participants in the conversation,
including viewers who are in the time-space of the exhibition.
