New Tahiti stands for a metaphor - a metaphor for a new avant-garde after the end of it all. An experiment after the failure of both Futurism and the Soviet Union as a total work of art.
Somewhere. On the far side of the capitol. In Siberia. On the hunt for a different, a romantic Modernism. A new Tahiti. Like a map. Like a road atlas through space and time on a new causeway for enthusiasts. The exhibition New Tahiti at Hilger contemporary acts as a culture bridge and interface between East and West. It shows a project that has begun as a solely private initiative by two artists. It shows works by a Western artist who went to Moscow to learn. It shows works that derive from the deep insight that one of the birthplaces of Modern art is Russia - without whom the sheer magnitude of today's Western culture would not be possible (Text passages by Lukas Pusch).
