The project “Lessons in the Boudoir” was prepared by Vadim Zakharov in 2003 and will find its first realization at Stella Art Foundation in February 2006. This project consists of a series of real lectures, held by leading critics, art historians, and philosophers in the absolutely intimate setting of a boudoir, in the presence of a super model, without any other spectators.
“Placing the Word and Beauty into a relationship of eternal opposition, “Lessons in the Boudoir” casts the Girl and the Lecturer as two equally important heroes of one and the same narrative. The spectator who watches their video-taped dialogue will not know what or who is more important in the situation at hand” — Vadim Zakharov.
This exhibition is organized as a part of the retrospective exhibition of Vadim Zakharov ’s works at the State Tretyakov Gallery.
