In the Moscow Museum of modern art "Garage", an exhibition of outstanding Russian artist, writer, musical artist, art theorist, founder of "psychedelic realism" by Pavel Pepperstein. The son of one of the founders of the Moscow conceptualist Viktor Pivovarov has become one of the most active myth-makers of contemporary Russian art, the inventor of systems, of universes, new languages, cities, and political projects. Personal exhibition in the Museum "Garage" is an attempt to fully 'inspect' the most notable and influential myths created by Pepperstein at different times — from the 1970s to the present day.

the Exhibition is a series of rooms, each of which develops and lives in one of such systems-landscapes — for example, "Library" collected books, a fictional Pepperstein, which are impossible to open, the viewer sees only the backs of magazines. This is one of the most important images for Pepperstein and founded, together with Sergei Anufriev and Yuri Leiderman group "Inspection "Medical hermeneutics"" (the name was coined by Anton Nosik) — book Pantheon of European civilization, in which Aristotle, Leibniz, and others replaced by new characters with pseudokoningii texts.

Important attention will be paid to the so-called political discourse — on the one hand, the reinvention of the political system, with another — enabling the very real actors of modern politics symbolic status, immersing them in the space of new utopias, in the invented arrangement of the States of the new world. The beginning of these "state activities" Pepperstein refers to 1970, when he invented and exhaustively described the utopian country and the political system: in the "Garage" shown for the first time early drawings and albums made by Pepperstein in adolescence.

exhibition Curator Ekaterina Inozemtseva: "...Through the whole exhibition, is a place where theatrical and theatrical and architectural solutions, held several cross-cutting elements, in particular different patterns, rapport, which, as in the practice of Moscow conceptualism, is not conceived as a mere "embellishment". For Pepperstein "purely decorative gives the loss of its origin, it has no genealogy, sirotstvo. Thus it refers to a perfect isolation from the context" (Jacques Sulio). Game with various levels of stratified reality, detection of magic, strange narratives between the folds actually move the entire show, turning it into a collection of amazing landscapes, like in one episode Pepperstein, who gave the name to the whole project."

the Path to the mythical mausoleum is through the hall of meetings of world leaders, where, as expected, there is a round table with the flags of different countries, speckled patterns, and a map of the planet, in contrast to the real, divided into countries straight lines. "The whole world bloomed. Came total prosperity. Absolute spring. If world leaders come here, then their brains will be covered with flowers, like these flags," — commented Pepperstein your installation.

the mausoleum look more like real. Only in the sarcophagus with Lenin watching magic dreams naked sleeping beauty, which the artist deliberately closer to the modern ideal beauty. "I think a Prince who has to resurrect Lenin. This installation is like a magic kiss. A long time ago it was necessary to depoliticize the perception of Lenin. Today, it is not a historical figure, but a powerful mythological structure" — explains the artist.

the exhibition Ends with a dark room, where floating microscopic Golden embryo. "The baby who, according to the logic of the exhibition, is a child of Lenin and sleeping beauty, says Pepperstein. The Golden child came out of my story narrating about the distant future, when the problem of the ruler of Russia. Members of scientific institutions together with the magicians and shamans create the ideal ruler — microscopic Golden child, which flies inside a giant black cube. The child is wise, feels all the inhabitants of Russia and gives the perfect solutions. This is the eternal model of power."

there is still a fictional diary of Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, philosophical, and ironic tale about the one-time black bun, books that cannot be read, or a portrait of the math teacher turned into a monster. For the first time Pepperstein presented their children's drawings, with which all began and which he never showed.
