Journey to the End of the Russian Empire

Author: Stanley Greene
Pálffy Palace (show Contact)
21. 10. 2016 - 22. 1. 2017
Curator: Laura Wittek

Stanley Greene’s exhibition Journey to the End of the Russian Empire represents the author’s subjective perception of the life of ordinary people in Russia, as inspired by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov’s travel across the inhospitable Russian country up to the Sakhalin Island and by his book The Island of Sakhalin.

There are many parallels in Chekhov’s works and Stanley Greene’s exhibition, enabling a deeper understanding of the substance of this exhibition.

The author of the photographs Stanley Greene offers a realistic picture of today’s Russia.  In his distinctive work, the present overlaps with the past. Through notes in his imaginary diary and indirect accounts which can be interpreted in different ways, his pictures show the bizarre atmosphere of society without following a set course of events.

In the content of his photographs, he leaves hidden messages and offers through them his personal impression of the mysterious country that he crossed.

This perception is also reflected in the structure of the exhibition Journey to the End of the Russian Empire.
