Angel Orensanz at the Alexander Pushkin Museum

MOSCOW.- Big banners with the emblem of Orensanz's exhibition "Earth: Death-Birth" festoon the compound that makes the Pushkin Museum in the Arbat. Thousands of visitors stop to have a glimpse at the banners and read the basics of what promises to be a major show in town. This is the first show in a Moscow museum of the work of leading contemporary artist, Spanish born Angel Orensanz "Earth: Death-Birth". The show fills the three rooms of the exhibition hall of the Museum. It consists of a host of strongly poetic sculpture pieces that fly over the three spaces, while huge projections give context to those sculptures and arresting drawings in which Orensanz captures the drama of the art as grave and cradle of life while the sculpture and drawings static the video projections insert the visitor in location such as the banks of the River Omono in Northern Japan, the lakes of Central Park and the canals of Venice. This is a show worth of the imagination of the theatrical strategies of Mayakovsky or Meyerhold, the images of Kandinsky and Chagall and the power of Lissitzky.

The power of these images have already attracted the attention of Moscow, even before the opening this coming Tuesday at 6 PM.(May 3rd, 2005) The City of Moscow has granted Orensanz a special distinction for his long term contributions to the art life of the city; as well as the National Association of Russian Artists and the Puskin Museum itself. In a recent conversation, Orensanz was remembering that the first opera he saw while a teenager, at the Teatro del Liceo de Barcelona, was "Eugene Onegin". Since then he has periodically visited Russia to enjoy and contribute art.

Angel Orensanz is a well-known sculptor and painter, and for the last ten years he has developed a critically appreciated body of video and film. In the show at the Puskin Museum, a collection of eight pieces from the Film and Video Library of the Museum of Modern Art in New York will be shown for the first time outside of the USA. A fully illustrated catalogue is available for visitor's of the show and the artist will answer questions from the press and the public.
