Exhibition from 2013 featuring representations of works by the artist Konstantin Konenko, a short biography on Konenko, and more.
Excerpt from the introduction to the exhibition:
"Konstantin Konenko is a name that will ring few bells, if any at all. Those who knew him personally may all have perished by now, and his work as an artist is known only to a handful of people. Konenko counts among those very many artists who are never very well known, whom we almost or completely forget, and whose oeuvre, as, or if at all, it is preserved, says nothing about the artist’s actual work when he was still breathing.
There is a very good reason, however, why Konenko is largely excluded from our memory of art, and it is not, simply, that his work was deemed irrelevant for canonisation; even if anyone wanted to preserve knowledge of Konenko and his work it would prove a severe challenge as he never actually produced anything for the future to remember. Rather than shaping physical objects to produce artworks, Konenko worked only within his mind, confining the sole medium of his artistic practice to the material of dreams."
Below follows an overview of Konenko’s works with texts and images from the exhibition.
