Four Seasons Hotel Moscow continues its pop-up exhibitions series of contemporary art and photographers. This time, Moskovsky Bar in cooperation with MSK Eastside will present pieces of Virginie Caillet.
Her paintings will be on display in the interiors of Moskovsky Bar between September 29 and October 13, 2016.
One of the favourite subjects of the artist is the study of woman’s nature through the “architecture” of woman’s body. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York, Virginie creates her works on large canvasses by combining painting, drawing and collage techniques. In Moskovsky Bar, she will present Amour Toxique, which translated from the artist’s native French means “toxic love.” It is a collection of works devoted to woman’s drama at the time of breakup. While all characters’ faces are hidden, their postures demonstrate the emotional state, their loneliness, dismay, anger, tiredness and passion. This collection is heavily based on drawing and painting techniques with only a small bit of collage insertions.
The curator of the exhibition, MSK Eastside gallery, discovers talented artists and photographers with extraordinary vision who work in various genres of visual arts.
Alongside the team of Moskovsky Bar, responsible for cocktails during this Supperclub exhibition will be the famous Japanese bartender Yukino Sato. Yukino started her career in 2009 in one of the hotel bars in Tokyo, then she moved to another bar that since 2011 holds its place among the top 50 bars in Asia. She has participated in numerous professional contests and shows and in 2013 was one of the finalists in the world’s largest global bartending competition, Bols Around the World. Thanks to experiments with different ingredients, constant improvement of techniques and creation of absolutely new cocktails, Yukino has become known well outside of her native Japan.
The project’s gastronomic team will be strengthened by Yaroslav Fribus, Sous Chef of the Sintoho restaurant atFour Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg. Yaroslav will take part in preparing a new Asian-style menu.
The exhibition’s opening ceremony will include a dance performance by Keyko Li, talented dancer who participated in many contests and was among the finalists of the Dance! show on Channel One. Keyko started ballet classes at the age of three and is now developing in the contemporary and jazz-modern styles. She has been recently dancing in the Leningrad Center in St. Petersburg headed by Vasiliy Kozyr.
Four Seasons Hotel Moscow guests will have an opportunity to see new exhibitions that will be organised in the upcoming months. By cooperating with arts professionals, Four Seasons Hotel Moscow aims to support contemporary Russian artists and promote local talents in the community and among international guests.
