The project involves artists from Sweden and Russia, who are working in different techniques and materials but united by their interest in studying and depicting nature. Each of them has his own view: poetic, descriptive or problematic. Their works will be placed in the exposition space of the museum, in close proximity to the natural biological objects.
In the name of the exhibition birches are not mentioned accidentally. Birches grow almost everywhere in the northern hemisphere and many peoples consider it to be their symbol. They dedicates songs and poems to it, connects it with beliefs and use it in rituals. The birch is the most beloved tree in Russia, her symbol.
Every artist participating in the exhibition share his thoughts about the fact that nature has no boundaries and helps us to overcome real or imaginary boundaries. The house on Malaya Gruzinskaya Street, where the exhibition will be held, can itself serve as a metaphor for unity and lack of boundaries because it was built with the participation of a Swedish architect in the Russian style. Once there was a museum of Pyotr Ivanovich Shchukin, who collected works of art of different peoples, and now here is a biological museum, a museum of the science of life, which has no boundaries at all.
The project includes an exhibition and a program of video art, lectures and master classes.
