To draw - is the project which represents the main directions of the contemporary art in Poland and Russia through the medium of drawing. There are two sections - Polish, which belongs to the neo-surrealistic, "insider" tendency, and Russian, which is connected with activism and the new engaged wave. The project is based on the contrast between these two vectors. And time, when the artists work, can be considered an integrative element.

That is research of lofe meaning. The way which with the begining was doomed for collapse but put into human nature. The world, outside and inside, couldn't be controled. The destiny, accident, feeling «something unexpectable», mixture in the head and selffeeling about nowhere to go and what to do with it. So that is what everybody thinks.

Alexander Dashevsky works with space, or to be more precise, with the way the space is represented in painting. The artist presented the three-dimensional geometry in his transparent, greyish-blue ‘Swimming pools’ and in the bright green allotments in Pulkovo, inspired by his favourite painter Diebenkorn.

- "As that" 01 Mar 2013 In my childhood my father and I would go for a walk and play the game that he invented, it was called ‘Like what?’. He said – ‘a cloud’, I said – ‘like a hare’, I said – ‘a fur tree’, father answered – ‘like a hutched old man’ and so on endlessly. The exhibition of the two artists applies to precisely this principle: ‘like what?’. Hrustalev’s napkin is like a top at the sunset, Simun’s canister is like the Virgin Mary. They have different approaches, but the same way of looking at things.
