Topography of creative evolution (Kulik’s Hair)


Creative consciousness of the artist is a very complicated process developing both in time and in space. Its material projection – installation “Kulik’s Hair” has the similar behaviour. The first twenty meters object keeps its plastic structure and clarity, a kind of energetic convolution. But with further development it enters gradually to a vague and amorphous area, splitting up to separate structures that are dwelt by worms and insects. After occupying the interior the object will keep developing during the exhibition. Overstepping the limits of the exhibision area the Hair will grow out of Gridchinhall.

It happens just by chance – it was one of the “circular tables”, were the Hair dropped out of Oleg Kulik’s beard, during monologue about the faith in Art and unity in the face of crisis. Caught on the clothes, it hung on the shoulder and it was carefully collected by Dmitriy Kawarga. In a few months the hair was pulled out of a test tube and measured. It appeared that Biological process hadn’t stopped and the hair keeps growing. It was obvious – artifact showed the behavior of biomorphous object that pushed Dmitriy forward to grow the Hair to full scale exhibition and careful art analysis of the phenomenon.

Keeping on the interactive tendencies of Dmitriy Kawarga works the new exposition explores onlookers’ thoughts flows. Research activities shows, that human brain is always bioelectric active. Every emotional or rational condition has its own unique pattern of such activity. Patterns are complicated, never repeating combinations of different rhythms (Alfa, Beta, Gamma etc), changing every second. Computer program that was made especially for the exhibition reads out those patterns. In dependence of sensor registration the program chooses one of soundtracks, thereby the object reacts on the bioactivity of the visitor brain. In other words, installation behaves different according to onlookers’ thoughts and emotions.

In spite of obvious insignificance of the cause, and a kind of ironical prehistory, the exhibition gives the reason to think about semantic correlations in material world, their biological characteristics and metaphysical projections.

The RNA Foundation is a cultural platform that aims at promoting established as well as up and coming Russian artists and creative individuals. Founded by Victoria Golembiovskaya, the RNA utilizes its wide reaching connections to provide support and exposure to artists, facilitating their relations with curators, dealers and critics. With experience in art management and curating Golembiovskaya established RNA in order to contribute to the Russian art education system, diversifying its narrow scope and implementing a wider, international engagement.


By providing space and means for artists to develop their practice, our goal is to establish a constantly expanding and developing network, where the Russian contemporary art scene can be introduced to a wider art market, galleries and institutions across the globe. To do so, an exploration of new ideas is needed, as well as an active expanding of boundaries of the media available. This progressive outlook allows us to bring out the collaborative potential of not only museums and galleries we work with, but also of other foundations, auction houses and art institutions.


One aspect of our future projects is to establish a series of workshop spaces that will provide an interdisciplinary environment for Russian artists from all backgrounds and with varying degree of experience. Serving as a meeting point and an exchange ground for cultural capital, these work and gallery spaces would also function as lecture theatres for educational purposes and public events. We also plan to create residencies between Russian and international artists, where we hope to instigate a much needed cross-fertilization and collaboration.


However in order to realize such varied projects, we often need financial support whether from an individual, patron, trust or company. Philanthropy and charity are important factors in realizing any cultural project and we would be happy to work with you, directing the need of social engagement and cultural support through RNA’s activities.


Active since 2008, RNA Foundation is an exciting, passionate organization that has exhibited and curated around the world, devoting our focus on international artistic progression.

Before launching the RNA Foundation in 2008, Victoria Golembiovskaya worked as a film producer and artistic director, gaining a vast experience in art management and further expanding her knowledge of history of art, which has graned the RNA foundation an original place and point of view within the international art community.

Our service is second to none; we provide consultations for the establishment and maintenance of private collections, as well as for large-scale curatorial projects. We have the contacts and resources to get a hold of rare works from all over the world for both private and public clients. In the last three years alone the RNA Foundation has produced shows in London, Moscow and Venice, handling valuable works in unprecedented environments, with a priority in presenting them in unique yet elegant manner. While maintaining a high standard and a rigorous vision we tailor our services to the client.
