Rough, Cold, and Close

Lise Sarfati
Rough, Cold and Close: A Russian Poem
On view through December 6, 2008

From Yossi Milo:

Presented in the exhibition are images of wooden houses in the countryside, recalling Russian architecture of the previous centuries, and more recent constructions from the Soviet era, such as metal garages, vegetable cellars and tool sheds. Destroyed and deteriorating interiors and barren landscapes are also included, revealing the undefined territories that characterized the transitional period of post-Soviet Russia. These various locations are juxtaposed with a series of portraits of homosexual boys, referring to a movement of individualization which emerged during the years 1995 – 2000 following the fall of the Soviet Union.
