Angel Orensanz – 20 лет в России 20 Years in Russia

MARCH 3 – APRIL 3, 2011

State Museum of the Russian Academy of Arts, Saint Petersburg



The State Museum of the Russian Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg presents “ANGEL ORENSANZ, 20 YEARS IN RUSSIA”, a retrospective exhibition that reflects 2 decades of his career and his intense relationship with Russia’s culture and its history. Angel Orensanz presents a wide review of drawings, sculptures, photographic material, installations and a multilayered video portfolio. His pieces are always strong narratives, most often site-specific, both in natural landscapes or public spaces; Angel’s work is always documented in photography and video.

The work of Angel Orensanz has been presented at Alexander Pushkin Museum, The Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, at the Rumiantzev Palace, the Hermitage Museum and the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. He has developed strong cooperation with artists like Mikhail Chemiakin, Jury Barikyn and poet Andrei Voznessensky. Orensanz has developed site-specific installations like his “Bridges for Red Square” (1991), his “Circles in the River Neva” (2008) and his “Field of Mind” (Moscow, 2007).

The artist was inducted as a member of the Russian Academy of Arts in 2009; and has been awarded numerous distinctions from the Moscow City Council.

His exhibition has been included in the official program of the Spanish-Russian Cultural Year 2011. “ORENSANZ, 20 YEARS IN RUSSIA” is an outstanding example of the interest aroused by Russia in some Spanish Contemporary artists.
