exhibited moscow, xl gallery, the branch, 1996 moscow, national center for contemporary art, reflection, 2005 literature and references national center for contemporary art, reflection,exhibition catalogue, 2005, illustrated stella art gallery, andrey monastyrsky, objects and installations, stella kay, 2005, p. 71, illustrated catalogue note andrei monastyrsky is often referred to as the founding father of russian conceptualism. initiating the collective actions group, he quietly and quickly became known among the russian intelligentsia, whom he incorporated as participants in his collective actions group\\’\\’s projects. since the group\\’\\’s inception in 1976, artists monastryrsky, alekseev, georgii kizeval\\’\\’ter, and nikolai panikov, and later joined by igor makarevichm, elena elagina, and sergei romashko, included aspects of minimalism, zen, existentialism, texts and images, as key characteristics of soviet life. the group noted in 1983, \\“all our activities can be briefly characterized as a kind of \\‘trip in the direction of nothingness\\’\\’ armed with equipment of an aesthetic/psychological nature. the means for this we receive from the existence of a very closed (but permanent) circle of engaged people.\\” (poezdki i vosproizvedeniia, moscow: self-published, 1980). among collective action\\’\\’s performance based \\‘social sculptures,\\’\\’ trips to the countryside (poezdki za gorod, 1980), periodically released in volumes, \\“…where the participants were periodically asked to travel by train to the country, then walk up to an enormous empty field to blow up balloons, appear and disappear in a forest, or lie down in a ditch\\” (tupitsyn, margarita, global conceptualism: points of origin, 1950\\’\\’s – 1980\\’\\’s, queens museum of art, new york, 1999). monastyrsky\\’\\’s sculpture branch of 1995, is a more recent example of the principles that were initially established within the group\\’\\’s discourse. similar to the italian radical conceptualist movement arte povera, where natural and common objects are merged in order to subvert the commercialization of art, branch consists of banal source material, i.e. unrolled rolls of packing tape, a common board, and an actual tree branch. monastyrsky\\’\\’s arrangement of these forms is whimsical yet serious, exhibiting pathos and hope.
