Ruarts Gallery presents ‘The Song Is Sung’, a solo exhibition by Dmitry Tsvetkov. The viewer will see new works – graphics and objects specially created for the project. As before, Tsvetkov’s visual language is based on his tiny men, the ‘Tsvetkov people’, which will also be presented at the exhibition as separate objects.
The title ‘The Song Is Sung’ came from life and this is not a tragic end, but rather irony. From the start Tsvetkov called his musical drawings ‘lullabies’ or ‘songs’, and they served as an outlet in his spare time from exhausting commercial orders. According to the author, he started his graphic series on lines from his favourite poets more than 20 years ago. ‘Lullaby’ with verse by Joseph Brodsky was first exhibited in the exhibition ‘Personal Space’, held at the Ruarts Gallery in December 2022, and several of Tsvetkov’s music sheets have already been showcased at the Museum of Moscow, in Krasnoyarsk and Berlin. Now this has finally grown into a separate large-scale project.
