On 13 July in the fftn gallery (St. Petersburg) the exhibition Plus by Kirill Kryuchkov opens within the framework of the project +++ (plus plus plus).
FFTN: What does your language consist of?
KK: The structures, which are directing my hand…
FFTN: What do your works grow from?
KK: The triumph of Line, Spot, and Dot…
FFTN: Who taught you to draw?
KK: The world around me, the people.
FFTN: What is your favorite music?
KK: The one similar to wind noise. Sound and melody are similar to a drawing.
FFTN: What kind of street art do you like?
KK: The kind that creates ruptures, that rewrites the space.
FFTN: What is the purpose of drawing in the streets?
KK: It is done in order to create a canvas, which will be able to barricade those streets.
FFTN: What is more complicated: chaos or order?
KK: I have no idea about the levels of complexity. For example, when I am drawing such a figure (shows) in the genre of “dirt”, you might really think that it is dirt, but here I add a dot (shows), and the dirt turns into a vegetable patch.
FFTN: What is the purpose of a rebellion?
KK: Rebellion is a means of communication.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
+++ (plus plus plus) is a series of exhibitions of three artists: Anastasia Ryabova (Moscow), Kirill Kryuchkov (Vladivostok), and Dmitry Evmenenko (Moscow), which will take place in the independent gallery fftn in St. Petersburg. The project continues the curatorial policy of fftn and presents an attempt to build new interregional connections on the level of micro-politics and the practice of matching-mismatching. The project does not suggest direct statements – only variability, spontaneity, a mixture of sensual and poetic.
