Autobiographical notes

In the late 70's, anticipating the end of empire, I decided to create its "generalizing image". The place was vacant. Took first isolate arhimodel imperial art as a thing-in-itself and then to highlight the realities of life around. It was a completely free individual action which had resulted in an eclectic style of the magic of form and content.


In the center of creativity Boris Orlov - no style, not plastic (with all their brightness and originality), not metaphysics, not folklore motives and social mythology. Each of these elements finds its aesthetic value, and new meanings are distinguishable only because of what they are. And are they - their own myth of the artist, in which they are fully loaded and the energy of which they are charged. For this myth - the myth of the possibility of Epifanio and artistic representations of Super-individual image.
Of course, in the myth of the artist, it is not talking about the religious, the religious metaphysics of the icon or mandala. Most - about the postmodern reflection on the themes of Freudian super-ego "or the teachings of Jung's archetypes of the" leader "and" Hero ", born from the womb of collective unconscious. Naturally, this reflection on the psychoanalytic and socio-cultural myths, transferred to the art itself becomes a myth - the myth of the artist on the above in various ways. It is this myth is that the central point, . in which "by themselves" converging lines of force deep archaic and avant-garde utopian proektivizma, . Roman ceremonial portraits and sacred Byzantine mosaics, . art of monumental propaganda of totalitarian regimes and the products of mass culture.,
. However, this myth of the myth - is not merely a reference to the postmodern paradigm, transcode and deconstruction, it is also the artist's response to the tragic experience of unfreedom, . Found in the Soviet empire, . and evidence on the experience of the liberation, . initiated decades of avant-garde art there is forbidden.,
. Orlov was one of the first artists who have turned to PEREKODIROVANIyu prevailing socio-ideological sign system
. Like artists, Sots Art ", he also uses the language of irony, the grotesque, simulations, carnival alerting. But this language is directed at him not to "expose", not to educate "demythologization", and to identify the underlying structures of mythological and archetypal images, the underlying socio-political metaphysics. Appear travesty, he took on the role of the artist himself, on his own initiative, began to create "real" art of the empire. Arts regulated, religious, iconographic calibrated - art limitless Triumph, greatness, valor, heroism.
The starting point in creating such art was the distinction between a person, personality, mask, mask. So to clarify the role of independent mass social virtues, ritual, totem signs "in the modern social Heraldry. There was a totemic line construction totem, which was stacked front classic portrait, spurred on in any of the imperial era. The character turned out necessarily a hero, as if repeating a magical function of the archaic heroes: the Great Man, Man Above all, the decree, Steering, Big Man, the most important person ... That is how the system ceremonial portraits of imperial busts, totems, the heroes of the revolution, war, labor, sports. These images, . mifoporozhdayuschemu way back to the most important man, . hierarchical emanations which they are, . self-sufficient in its presence, . and therefore can be implemented in different styles: baroque or Suprematism, . Constructivism and Pop Art,
. However, it will always be the dominant image of the facade - his triumph, a dazzling temptation, supra greatness, shining glory.
. However, . as totems of the Spirit of the Empire, . Images Orlova, . along with the Apollonian clarity, . bear in themselves as an imperial asymmetry: the ambivalence, . duality, . inescapable insoluble contradictions between the facade and the commonness, . order and nature, . sacred and profane, . completed and becomes,
. The fundamental dualism of the empire is assigned an artist with an aesthetic play of the ambivalence of the mark and denotations, emblems and meaning.
. But, . now, . when the kingdom of the Third Rome has deep cracks and there are many reasons to believe, . that the Soviet imperial cult art will soon become the property of archaeologists, . sculptures and objects of Boris Orlov acquire a new dimension: they are the only possible representation, . indestructible, . Eternal Empire - Celestial Empire myths, . legends and artistic imagination,
