The mixed media installation STARIE NOVOSTI will be displayed at the historic Biblioteca Zenobiana (1777) by Tommaso del Temanza, as part of the Collateral Event of the 54th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia. The charming pastel ceiling frescos of the loggia contrast with the nine photographic light boxes, which are reminiscent in form of high-rise architecture and also of military transport containers. International handling marks add an element of transition and limited temporality to the objects on display. Foldable objects that are reminiscent of polyptychs simultaneously show small TV monitors with news footage covering the, by now forgotten, hostage crisis that shocked the world.

The exhibition will be accompagnied by the catalogue "Starie novosti, Anastasia Khoroshilova" published by Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Special thanks are due to the sponsors Artphilein Foundation, Ernst Hilger and Adrian Riklin.
Organized by the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.
