Ouroboros

Large-scale group exhibition of city

The project is based on one of the oldest symbols - Ouroboros. Curator Sergey Khachaturov offers artists free interpretation of the topic within the discourse of opposing processes:

The beginning and the end
Chaos and order
Destruction and creation
Fragment of a sketch of MishMash group for Ouroboros
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.

Painting by Katya Gerasimenko for Ouroboros
In our project, we are guided by the idea any mysterious symbol or emblem exists thanks to the context of its interpretations. We invited a team of artists. Each of them creates not a monument to the emblem, which is shown very well in books on Baroque, but rather a situation on the topic: what happened to the fragment of the Universe where Ouroboros appeared. In general, a laboratory is being created. And everyone in it is busy looking for their own tail of circulating ideas.
