I was born in the Middle Urals. And the two mountains, Cook Hospital - is a two-lobe of the liver, in which live Stomaki Great Soul, and the gall bladder is a lake, which reflects my sky.
. There appeared one of my heroes - Stomaki, . autonomous living and moving the gastrointestinal tract, . tortuous, . as a way of life Russian man, . gentle, . as the small intestine mucosa, . beautiful, . like a Christmas tree, . mighty, . as the Ural mountain range,
. And on this I r a l e, this mythical fragrant tree, arbor mundi, hanging fairy ornaments, reflecting the enthusiastic eyes of children. First Dabloid. He looks like a moving independently in the leg with a small head on top. It symbolizes copulation high and low: the head in the sky, far away, and because small feet at the bottom - a stable and large. Sign of the Tao: the yin and yang - are two Dabloid, interconnected. The character Tao (way) consists of two characters: the foot and head. So Dabloid it our way, its red color - that's life, his silence - our wisdom.
Whence came these DabloidyN They were born from the rounded (rotundum) supreme god - Dablus, single and great. And it happened in the Urals, the earth, generating myths, where I was fortunate to be born. Documentary evidence of the presence in the Middle Urals Dablus infinite set. This area is generally the most intense phenomena in Russia.
Usually Dablus observers confused with UFO. The oval shape, milky light emanating from krasnooranzhevogo body, a sense of fear among observers, the method of "birth" of the newcomers, splitting in half and the disappearance of ... All this indicates that the notorious unidentified objects - a very definite and specific subject: Great and Mighty Dablus. Brilliant androgyne - Ottsemat - so I called his book (released in publishing Dablus in 1993), water and fire, the mandala, the phenomenon of Epiphany.
I have found the image on Dablus ancient icons of the Nativity. Typically Virgin reclines or sits on an oval red object, sometimes called mutaky a la, a pillow for seating. Since the Byzantine or Orthodox icon all makes sense, . and iconography is a real conceptual art, . this subject is clearly a Dablus - connected with each other women's breasts red, . "living" color, . embodying the "eternal feminine", . fertility, . in the icon - Birth of Christ,
. Seated at Maria Dablus means Christianity defies paganism, and at the same time, born out of him.
. Like any powerful unconscious mental phenomenon, . emerged from the depths of consciousness of the people, . Dablus appeared in Russia during the transition from one political system to another, . when society is in a state of utter bewilderment, . anxiety and confusion,
. And now he comes and gives birth to streamline mental chaos Dabloid both instruments - the so-called "yantras" on the doctrine of Mahayana Buddhism, which normalizes mental procedure, the substitution of the political and social myths Dabloid.
. It should be noted that this is particularly important for the Russian nation, whose penchant for chaos and psychopathic disposition known worldwide
. Developing an abstract image in the soft warm "favorite" toy Dabloid becomes tame, and fear and aggression disappear like smoke. Imagine only the following picture: that if the set of parties, . NGOs, . small social groups to replace their signs on the flags in the minds of a single red mark - Dabloid on yellow foneN This Dabloid, . This "idea of all things" sublimates and mass psychosis, . and vague fears of a teenager, . young resident of the Urals or Texas.,
. I first saw Vodolazov on the lake when I was 6 years old, they came out of the water in their hands wet their hearts and their hoses went into the depths of the subconscious of the Urals
. Divers searched drowned, my compatriots drowned drunk or asleep while swimming at a wedding or wires in the army. Now divers are inside the "Library of divers, illuminating light of his own head open book.
. Black velvet of their skin, spacesuit, like teddy bears, favorite toy, Russian children, a long hose - it is an endless cord was never cut off, she accompanies us all his life, connecting with the earth and eternity
. And when the time comes to go back - gentle and strong hand tighten the rope. Look at this rug, Ural folk art: in every family there are, they are placed at the threshold. It seems to me - it is the placenta, afterbirth, "the last, where its roots umbilical cord. This mat was knitting my mother from the old clothes of my family. That's my father's shirt, a dress is my mother, my children's clothes here. All cut into thin strips and bound in a single structure, many have already died, who wore these clothes, but the heat keeps this mat that takes effect or the blood of the land of the Urals and an invisible umbilical cord sends it to you all my life. Another archetype that is present in the house each Ural - "Runner" is also woven from old clothes, it can be very long as a person's life, and how human life is bright, then dark, then happy, then sad.
. My countrymen, Ural, built their mythological Kosmos in the image and likeness of the universe
Creativity Moscow artist Leonid Tishkov by its very nature defies categorization. Introducing him to the public, we can not attribute it to a particular artistic school or style. It is better to make a list of his works. Although Tishkov received medical education, this is now a successful painter, publisher, illustrator, graphic artist, cartoonist, poet, playwright, sculptor, composer and organizer of exhibitions.
To extract the essence of his work from this dazzling diversity, we must pay attention to the recurring images of his. One of its main features - a transference of such images from one genre to another. Picturesque scenes are developed and then in books and conversations, watercolor images are converted into three-dimensional sculpture. As a result, his work is replete with internal links, because all his ideas are deeply intertwined. To understand his art, you should read his play 'Dabloids' (1991), and this will help determine its wider context of Russian culture in general. Only so can the critic to find the basic principle that unites all Tishkov's work into a cohesive artistic and philosophical system, and determine how this complex and eccentric view of the system enters the mainstream of Russian culture.
. Central to the creation Tishkov is the image Dablus - archetype and a symbol of fertility, connected, therefore, the myth of Christmas
. The oval shape reflects the androgynous nature of this substance, which combines feminine and masculine - breast and phallus. One, despite his ambivalence, Dablus can be considered as a modern version of the search for the lost ideal of androgynous wholeness, in which the opposition had not yet dispersed.
. Next Dablus has an ambivalent attitude to the sacred, and profane
. In the first sense relates to Dablus bed, . where the Virgin is depicted in Russian icons of the Nativity, . the second - like bread and sausage, . these essential components of modern power of the Russian people, . that is materially, . mundane human existence,
. Kids Dablus - red, in the form of the foot - are called Dabloids. Name produced morphological pattern Leon-Leonid, what was the name of the artist (cm. 'Not only Dabloids: selected interviews, illustrated by the author').
In Dabloid, Tishkov's art world is populated by other creatures - an elephant, divers, chocks, Stomaki. Dabloids usually, though not always embody the human complexes, delusions, illusions, ignorance, stupidity, fear. Csurka them is akin to - they are arrogant and aggressive, hurt lonely, shy, vulnerable, naked Stomaki. Divers are hidden by their masks and entirely dependent on the hose, which can be cut at any moment. Living in the elephant's trunk, these characters are closely related to the space they inhabit and represent - the narrow and tight spaces in our subconscious.
. The book, published at Dablus in 1991 in 500 copies under the title 'Dabloids', gives us further information about these creatures in the form of foot
. Her lithographed pages of handwritten format almost empty on the left and right are overloaded. On the left is given an isolated image with the signature: on the first page of 'beautiful androgyne' Dablus, the following 13 - mock versions of the Soviet type Dabloid. I Tishkov, in his writings and paintings, parts of human anatomy - feet, stomach, liver, heart, breast, phallus - are transformed into characters.
The publication of books Tishkov supplemented recently interest in sculpture. His recent shows include not only two-dimensional, but three-dimensional images and Dablus Dabloid. In the center of the work submitted to them it puts stupneobraznye Dabloid sculptures, which symbolically and literally connected by a patchwork of tubes with a large chested Dablus. Figures Dabloid all classes, colors and sizes are equipped with signature: 'I touch it, I warm', 'I love children and women', 'I love you', etc.. Watercolors included in the installation, explains how to make your own Dabloid, say, from an old sock.
. At the end of the show is held the ritual circumcision ceremony of the tubes that connect with Dabloids Dablus, and they are left hanging as a sign that interrupted the original unity.
. In addition to the sculpture Tishkov accompanied their recent exhibition music of his own composition, performed by him on the organ
. By their own game, he adds, with the primitive sound improvisation, consisting of a whisper, sighs, and all kinds of phonetic combinations, producing almost hypnotic effect. This reminds fantastic Kruchyonykh philology, his "nonsense", proposed as a spontaneous uncodified language. It can also be compared with the ecstasy of religious sects, when they begin to "speak in tongues". Ultimately, Tishkov also correlates with the Russian culture, as it Dabloids with Dablus. Whether his poems, paintings, drawings, Sculpture, music, book illustrations and cartoons, they are all generated by this culture. However, so closely connected with the Russian tradition, they at the same time subtly parodies her. As a synthesis of approval and skepticism to undermine its character, they are open to ambiguity. His illustrations may seem stupid and wise, his writings - and the vulgar and lyrical, his attitude - and childish and serious, his paintings - and ugly and refined. But if they look "ugly", it soon because Tishkov indifferent to the traditional questions of beauty and style. And in this sense it is deeply rooted in the Russian tradition, which unlike the West has always been - in the words of James Billington - "more than offset by the ideals embodied in the film than her artistic side,". Similarly, for Tishkov important not as pronounced content, but said that his work.
