Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Cosmist Reconstructions, the first solo exhibition with artist Andréa Stanislav. For this exhibition, Stanislav uses sculpture in concert with her collage and text constructions to tap into the utopic philosophical and cultural phenomenon of Russian Cosmism. Cosmism’s widespread reemergence is virtually unknown in the west, this early 20th- century Russian philosophy included diverse thinkers such as Nikolai Fyodorov, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and Vladimir Vernadsky amongst others, who formed ideas of active approaches to space exploration and colonization, personal immortality, and a resurrection of the dead. Space exploration and immortality explored through film, literature and pop culture derived from Cosmism are longstanding informants in Stanislav’s work.
