Beyond Visual Range
Iwona Blazwick: "The museum is at once a repository of both history and of myth. It is the site of engagement for Mikhail Tolmachev, who studies at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig and was commissioned by the V-A-C Foundation in 2014 to create a work in Moscow’s public space. With Beyond Visual Range Tolmachev makes eleven incursions into these dense displays. His theme of ‘the eyes of war’ asks how conflict is represented and by whom ? Epic in scope and complexity, Tolmachev’s project mounts a multidimensional investigation into the relationship between voice and vision, history and memory."
