. Contemporary art scene can be compared with the saturated solution - the number of stylistic currents, creative positions, individual style, per unit of space and time, reached a seemingly conceivable limit
. Invent something extraordinary, to enter into a professional everyday life or that a composite or plastic course, the more so - "start" a new style is in a similar situation a matter of almost hopeless. Nevertheless, Alexander Zosimova can be ranked in such explorers. He - the founder of the original style of the phenomenon - an architectural version of the Sots Art. At the core of his creative method is the combination of incompatible collage - diverse contexts, borrowed, usually from old magazines Sheet. With regard to the subject, here and carnival contortion foolishness moldy Soviet ideology (especially - in its socialist-realist hypostasis), and the purely formal search, and even, in the definition of Alexander himself, "just curious". Preceded it by his own admission, familiarity eschu a student with a book R. Venturi, Complexity and contradiction in architecture ", this bible of postmodernism. Then for the first time and it is salutary relief from chronic occupational complexes.
