MOSGOROD
11.04.2012 - 20.05.2012
Within the framework of Photobiennale 2012 Supported by the Embassy of France and French Institute in Russia
From April 11 till May 20 Ruarts Gallery presents the MOSGOROD exhibition, supported by the Embassy of France and French Institute in Russia. Within the framework of Photobiennale 2012 three famous French photographers Marc Bonneville, Laurent Villeret and Boris M represent to the Moscow public their vision of the fantastic metropolis existing only in their imagination, in which landscapes one can easily guess real Moscow with the familiar traits of different world capitals.


Moscow is the capital of Russia, an enormous country, even on a scale of the whole continent.
Its population, according to the officials, is 15 million and 20 million – according to different independent sources. Is it a magnetic place, symbol of success and power, inaccessible city?
Marc Bonneville, Laurent Villeret and Boris M are the three French photographers who conducted research of urban environment, trying to reflect reality by means of quantum approach, in which the very fact of watching the experiment process is changing its results. These three viewpoints, three measuring tools, are turning into a building instrument of a new city called MOSGOROD.
Lacerated shadows, highlights, chromatic flare and mirror reflexions are all visual materials new reality of MOSGOROD is built on.
One of the photographers uses filters, another uses an opened diaphragm, the third one – a very complex printing technique, but all of them have a common dream of a universal, polytechnical, multisynthetic and complex metropolis.
