Ekaterina Muromtseva
Tough Men's Portrait

On September 10, the XL Gallery is opening an exhibition of Moscow artist Ekaterina Muromtseva "Tough Men's Portrait". The name of the exhibition is a quote of the hero of the video work presented in the exposition: his words are devoted to the painting, the process of creation of which formed the basis of the film. 

The central character of the video by Ekaterina Muromtseva is a real person, tennis coach and amateur artist. Shooting took several months and took place in the studio of the hero, where he worked on an important and special, in his own opinion, work. In fact, the documentary film in the gallery's space begins to play with new colors and raises important questions for the audience about art and personal creativity, as well as about the assessments, which are involuntarily assigned to the work thanks to its key image.
