The Central Volga Branch of the NCCA as part of ROSIZO, together with the MOMENTUM non-profit platform for time-based art (Berlin), in the framework of the international cultural project Russian Seasons in Germany 2019, present the exhibition Shiryaevo Biennale. Central Russian Zen.

The exhibition is a metaphorical reflection on the experience of the oldest active international biennale of contemporary art in Russia, which has been held since 1999 in the ancient Russian village of Shiryaevo on the Volga bank, one of the most beautiful places of the Samara bend surrounded by the Zhiguli Nature Reserve on all sides. The Shiryaevo Biennale was intended and carried out as an international experimental project by famous Russian curators Nelya Korzhova and Roman Korzhov, the founders of the Samara Regional Public Charity Foundation "The
Centre for Contemporary Art" with active contribution from Hanns-MichaelRupprechter and Stuttgarter Kunstverein from Germany as well as a group of artists from Kazakhstan headed by Rustam Khalfin.
The exhibition will be based on the archive of the biennale: photos, videos, objects and installations from the personal collection of Nelya Korzhova and Roman Korzhov. However, at the same time, the exhibition goes beyond the traditional retrospective and creates an idea of the biennale’s authentic image for the widest audience. The conceptual solution of the exhibition is a large-scale video chronicle of the project, as well as the exhibition hall covered in river sand and stands from
quarry stone mined in Shiryaevo for the last 200 years — it is a total installation representing a kind of mental map of Shiryaevo. The exposition gives an opportunity to feel the unique atmosphere of the biennale, reflects the ideas of contemplative and performative nature of the event and becomes a starting point for a conversation about the history of its creation.
The strategy of the Shiryaevo Biennale is aimed at finding new forms of contemporary art communication in social environment. The form of the main biennale project, "creative laboratory" and "nomadic show", is Nelya Korzhova’s original idea uniting the Eastern concept of nomadism, referring to free movement, wandering, and the Western concept of a "show", a public presentation. The space for creation display during the "nomadic show" is the entire village of Shiryaevo with the surrounding landscape: the Volga, mountains, mines, lake shore, village houses and streets.
As an artistic phenomenon, the "nomadic show" stands closest to mystery play evolving in time and space and changing the experience of those who participate
in it. It makes visitors follow a unique route and experience the meditative qualities of the Central Volga landscapes, a kind of "Central Russian Zen" reflecting the biennale’s setting for contemplation, intangibility, emptiness, and absence of any tracks left behind.
The Shiryaevo Biennale offers not only an alternative to the traditional functioning of art within the framework of the "white cube" concept, but also a strategy of independence from the vertical of power in art. Created by "artists for artists" the biennale turned out to be resistant to shocks and succeeded in surviving as a special experience of international co-creation. The condition of artists’ living in the houses of local residents is seen as a way of creating a perfect environment for artistic expression. The main idea of this experiment is to give an artist a chance to start working from scratch without feeling the pressure from his or her established image and the art market technologies.
Today the Shiryaevo Biennale is the internationally known contemporary art event in the Russia. Throughout the years the biennale has hosted artists and curators of special programs from Russia, Kazakhstan, Germany, France, Great Britain, Sweden, Austria, Italy, Lithuania, Estonia, Armenia, Denmark, the USA, the Netherlands, Singapore, Norway and India.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an educational program both at the MOMENTUM venue and at the partner sites of the project in Berlin.
