Unicorn. Works from 1960 until 2023

The Galerie Volker Diehl presented an exhibition of works by Andrey Krasulin (1934) in Berlin, created between 2022 and 2023. Krasulin is a well-known minimalist artist, who is known for his pioneering work in public spaces. His art is characterized by a new way of looking at objects and forms in the pictorial world, where he eliminates unnecessary details and decor. Krasulin's latest works, named "The Last Period," explore the urban space of Berlin on the banks of the Spree River. These works offer a new interpretation of memory, trauma, and time. The exhibition also features a small retrospective of the artist's well-known works from the 1960s and beyond, including objects from the series "Envelopes," "Bronze on Mandelstam," "Disabled Man," "Boards," and more. The exhibition catalog includes texts by Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Andrei Krasulin, and exhibition curator Evgenia Kiseleva-Afflerbach, specially published for the exhibition. A key image that gave its name to the whole project is "Unicorn," which is a metaphor for absence and loss.
