Alexei Gordin is one of the artists represented by the Kogo gallery. His paintings, videos and performances tell a humorous story about the bottlenecks and absurdity of society and capitalism in life, mainly through narratives related to the art world.
The painting ”By appointment” refers to the situation of the cultural sphere in the current Corona times, but at the same time it tells about the low and unattainable reputation of art – we have all heard about dizzying auction prices and star-artists. In contrast, most artists do not get that kind of recognition. The interest towards art and the visiting numbers of art galleries could be much higher.
