Better safe than sorry thing. Travel from St. Petersburg to Moscow

Sculptures, furniture, and objects of applied art accompanied the life of many generations of Sheremetevs and regularly moved from one manor house to another. Fifty items stored in the Moscow family residence in the Ostankino estate were brought to the Sheremetyevo Palace in St. Petersburg. Once again in the mansion on Fontanka, things allowed you to recreate the historical appearance of several rooms at once. Now the interiors of the Etruscan, Crimson and Stucco drawing rooms look the same as when they were first owned in the XVIII and XIX centuries.

Zhang Huan. In the ashes of history

Zhang Huan is a contemporary Chinese artist who became famous after a number of high-profile performances in China and the United States. In the mid-2000s, the artist began creating paintings in a unique technique: most of his large-scale works are written with ashes from incense from Buddhist temples. One of these works is a forty-meter group portrait of the Communist party of China, which will occupy almost the entire wall of the Nikolaev hall. The exhibition will also feature works in another unusual technique, which is a mix of photography and wood carving. Some of the wooden reliefs are based on paintings from the Hermitage collection. A special series of works "Love" / "Love" will be a response to the personal stories of people affected by the coronavirus. The title refers to the tragic story of a pregnant woman who died from the virus. In total, the exhibition will include more than 30 works by the artist, many of which were created specifically for the Hermitage.
