22th of May at 19:00 Dymchuk Gallery invites to the opening of a joint project by Igor Gusev and Illya Isupov – artists who are always reflecting on social phenomena and sharply and ironically are displaying them in their works. In the project entitled “Drunk revolvers” artists will present paintings and installations inspired by the latest Ukrainian events. Until the last moment Gusev and Isupov are intriguing us and as a kind of teaser for the exhibition offer a short manifesto:
“We have never considered ourselves as revolutionary artists. But happen to live in a time of change. Could not remain indifferent.”
Sincerely I.Gusev, I.Isupov
