public_access_description
Alexander Florensky began his career in the 1980s as a traditional painter and illustrator but turned to conceptual art in the 1990s joining the satirical Mitki group. His Russian Album is an ironic take on the popular Russian taste for copies of nineteenth-century history paintings in the style of the 'Wanderers' school of social realists. For his purpose Florensky has adopted the idiom of the Lubok or folk print which depicted narrative, moral or satirical subjects and flourished in Russia into the early twentieth century. The accompanying CD shows animated versions of the prints.
