“I don't complain about anything and I like everything” will be inaugurated on Saturday 25 November 2023 from 6.30 pm at the Pallavicini22 Art Gallery exhibition space in Viale Giorgio Pallavicini 22 in Ravenna. Vsevolod Prokhorov's solo show, curated by Roberto Pagnani and Claudia Agrioli and with a critical text by Luca Maggio in the catalogue, will remain on display until Sunday 10 December and will be open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday from 4pm to 7pm. Free admission. The exhibition is included in the calendar of the VIII edition of the Ravenna Contemporary Mosaic Biennial. The exhibition Vsevolod Prokhorov is young, Russian, he loves to experiment. His Italian mosaic training took place in Spilimbergo, with everything that in terms of petrosity implies the imprinting of this school, grafted onto the previous path of graphic-pictorial studies which took place in his homeland. The code of his thinking is found at the crossroads of several artistic languages, seeking common points and completely different specificities (for Vsevolod in ancient mosaics what matters from a mosaic point of view is not in the central, more pictorial emblem, but in the ornamental patterns that surround it), as well as possible solutions in hybridizing painting and weaving, colors and their absence, wider spatial (and emotional) paths and contracted, if not blocked, time, both in light of the artistic history of different disciplines and in connection with history of his land and of the post-Soviet world. Above all, he is interested on the one hand in understanding "what Romanesque floors and pop art have in common" and on the other, drawing inspiration from the examples of conceptual avant-garde of important Ukrainian artists such as Kabacov or Russian groups such as Collective Action, active since stagnant Brežnevian seventies, wants to understand and make us reflect on the idea of the usefulness of art, on its functionality in relation to its origins and to the past and current society, of the globalized world in which we are all forced to be. The Artist Born in St. Petersburg in 1995,Vsevolod Prokhorov, known as Seva, studied at the 190 art high school, then graduated from the Institute of Industrial Technology and Design, specializing in muralist. In 2019 he moved to northern Italy, where he continued his studies at the Scuola Mosaicisti del Friuli in Spilimbergo which he concluded in 2023 with the title of "master mosaicist". In Italy he began to have a broader approach to abstract art and is expressed through a dialogue between conceptual art and mosaic. The event, promoted and organized by CARP Associazione di Promozione Sociale in collaboration with the PALLAVICINI 22 Art Gallery Exhibition Space and with the Ghigi-Pagnani Collection Archive, avails itself of the patronage of the Legislative Assembly of the Emilia Romagna Region, of the Municipality of Ravenna Department Culture and Mosaic, of the Academy of Fine Arts of Ravenna, of the Port System Authority of the central-northern Adriatic Sea and of the support of BCC Ravennate Forlivese and Imolese, Gruppo SAPIR SpA Ravenna, DARSENALE – BIZANTINA BREW PUB Ravenna.
