Anton Logov's new personal project consists of several parts. The exposition presented in the hall will be continued and complemented by an installation in the terrace that represents one of the elements of his exploration - "practice". This way the artist projects the "victory of art" that according to him is possible only in uniting three components - meaning, form and practice: after finding its meaning and its form, a work of art must be embodied in practice. Also, in this project, the author explores phenomena that accompany the creative process - the feeling of time, love, dream and history.
A point is a stain, a shape, a volume, a meaning, an ending or a beginning. Depth and eternity. Indefinable object in geometry. A punctuation mark in many languages. A measurement unit of distance in the Russian and English systems of measurement. One of the symbols in Morse code. A location of combat duty. A point is machining process, grinding and sharpening. A view point as a philosophical concept. A point is an eternal concept of apprehension of life meanings, the laws of birth and death, an ending of a life stage. A point is at the same time a circle, a hearth of impact, a visual aesthetic form. A point is simultaneously a vague and a specific concept, like a shot into the intended target. A point is a hole. A full point, like other punctuation marks, is divided from the following signs with a space. A point is color back, unlike other colors (yellow, blue, purple) that as an axiom carry a semantic connotation. Yellow is the sun, blue is the sky and the sea, purple is joy. The prototype of a point is a cross (stop sign). A point is a geometric object. It is not a material object. In geometry, a point is a zero-dimensional object. Any geometrical figure is considered to consist of points. Euclid defined a point as an "object that has no parts" (Wikipedia).
A point is the result of the first collision of an artistic tool with a material surface. In this collision, the main surface is fertilized.
A geometric point acquires its materialization form primarily in a print sign: it applies to speech and denotes silence ("Point and line to plane").
An interaction of human consciousness with the external energy field is performed by an organ called the Assemblage Point.
In the spiritual world and understanding, a point is a rather amorphous, vague and non-specific concept.
A point is a form of memory.
Form is a border of meanings. A boundary is a thought, bordering on a transition of a fantasy into reality. Form isn't always a formality. Form is neither real, nor abstract.
A form is a person
Form may have a double meaning - a superficial and a concealed. A magazine collage is, on one hand, real and, on the other - accidental and abstract. This is some explanation of abstract art. Form can be deep, because it is a meaning in itself. It shapes the awareness of meanings. The form is not influenced by color, laughter, music, text or voice. Form is a modern social situation, the memory of time, vectors of East and West. Form is a sculptural origin and the architectural factor in it is the same as a reference point in the neutrality of cold outlines of time.
Only though practice form acquires meaning - the truth that we are not able to feel, but can visualize. Like this give interactive object on the terrace, screaming of the triumph of form over meaning. Form - meaning - practice. It is a victory of art.
