MOSCOW.- Moscow Museum of Modern Art, together with Artwin Gallery, presents a retrospective exhibition of Sveta Vikkers, who is an artist, a designer, a founder of the Russian club movement, an owner of Moscow clubs “Hermitage” and “Shambhala”.

The museum’s exhibition space in 9 Tverskoy Boulevard has been transformed into gardens until the end of March. At first, visitors find themselves in the Hermitage Garden on the ground floor. Then they go up to the first floor where they get to the Garden of Eremites.

The galleries have been filled with paintings from the author’s collection and private collections of different years, created during the period from the late 1980s until the present. The curators find the strategy of eremites, searching for solitude, spiritual purity and peace, rather relevant. At least, it provides compensation in the time, oversaturated with aggressive influences.

Sveta Vikkers allows the viewer to surprise to the fantasy, to enjoy the color saturation of her paintings, to be touched with the plots and characters. The artist produces pictures of the lost paradise, gardens, returning the joy of contemplating the wonderful world, as it was in childhood. She takes the viewer into the Garden of Eden, narrating wonderful stories, where fiction is intertwined with the reality.

Sveta Vikkers became engaged in painting in the mid 1980s. One can try to find a place for her art in the context of art history of modern times. But she doesn’t try to follow the traditions. Vikkers’s oeuvre easily supplements contemporary art, since in the world of art there’s a special space for the artists, who ignore the adopted aesthetic canons. In her artworks, the artist is interested in the life as such, its free manifestations, and a bright moment sometimes gives cause to create one more painting.

Sveta Vikkers was born in Moscow in 1952. She started her artistic career in 1987 with the exhibition in the Palace of Culture of the Moscow Electro-Lamp Factory (MELZ) at the premiere of Sergei Soloviev’s film Assa. She was a member of group exhibitions, such as the ART MIF I in the Central House of Artists, the Direction: North. Direction: South in the New Manege, the Autumn Exhibition in the City Committee of Graphic Artists. In 2006, she had a solo exhibition titled the Search for Eternal Love in Moscow Art Center on Neglinnaya. Her other solo exhibitions were organized in 1989 in Milwaukee, Illinois, USA. Her works were shown at the exhibition Perestroika in 1990 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Vladimir Sorokin was inspired by her artistic image, and she became the prototype of the character in the film Moscow, shot on his script in 2000. The artist lives and works in Moscow.
