Project "Ouroboros".

In the fall of 2021, JART gallery is opening an exhibition of urban site-specific art called "Ouroboros". The curator of the exhibition, Sergey Khachaturov, brought together an unexpected lineup of artists: from very young to the masters of contemporary Russian art. At COSMOSCOW, the gallery will show a group preview of the project, continuing the tradition of 2020, when JART won the title of the best stand for the preview of the forest exhibition "CHA SCHA".
The gallery's stand in 2021 will be designed by the MishMash group, artists of the year at COSMOSCOW 2019. MishMash on the stand: «Everything moves, everything rotates, everything is absorbed and turns inside out. A banquet table that eats itself. An exhibition podium that shows itself. A meeting table for conversations that never end. The festively covered food chain of the contemporary art market.»

The concept

"The word "Ourobor" (or "juroboros") comes from a combination of ancient Greek words translated as "tail" and "food". The snake that bites its tail is the famous emblem of оuroboros. The symbol, originating from Ancient Egypt, existed in Greece and Byzantium, settled with the scribes of the alchemists of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque. Favorably received by Hermetic Masonic teachings.

Everyone likes the symbol because it inspires the imagination. Its interpretations are endless and limitless, like those of Malevich's Black Square. Everything will be true and commonplace. The unity and struggle of opposites, the circle of time, creation and destruction, death and life, chaos and space ... Everything excites senses, everything captivates and hypnotizes, like the eye of a snake."
