В 2003 г. немецкое издательство Konkursbuch Verlag Claudia Gehrke издало «Ленинградский альбом», серию ранних эротических рисунков Е. Козлова. Книгу получил итальянский куратор Массимилиано Джони, ставший страстным поклонником рисунков («Это настолько сильная и прекрасная вещь, что я все время думал и думал о ней» см. здесь >>). Впоследствии он лично отобрал 150 рисунков из серии для двух своих выставок: «Остальгии» в нью-йоркском Новом музее (2011 г. см. здесь>>) и Венецианской биеннале (2013 г. см. здесь >>).

В галерее Navicula Artis впервые будет представлен весь «Ленинградский альбом», состоящий из 256 рисунков и текстовых листов, а также обратные стороны некоторых рисунков с текстами. Художник хочет привлечь внимание к своему проекту по полному изданию этой серии – книжное издание 2003 г. содержит примерно половину всех рисунков (в уменьшенном формате), к тому же оно давно продано.

Экспозиция дополнена коллажами из цикла «Век ХХ. Часть 1» (1989–2008 гг.). В 2004 г., после издания «Ленинградского альбома», Е. Козлов использовал в этих коллажах фигуры и объекты из книги, иногда разрисовывая их см. здесь. Они стали центральными или дополнительными элементами работ, а листы с их помощью расширились, образуя «гармошку» см. здесь.

Результат художник описал следующим образом: «Бриллианты, изумруды, сапфиры и рубины современного искусства, а также янтарь с мухами внутри».

(Е-Е) Евгений Козлов (род. 1955 г., Ленинград) был одним из главных представителей группы «Новые художники», созданной Тимуром Новиковым в 1982 г. С 1993 г. художник живет в Берлине, с 2005 г. подписывает свои картины «Е-Е».

Его творчество характеризуют масштабные проекты, в том числе «Миниатюры в раю» (1995 г. см. здесь >>), «Век ХХ. Часть 2» (2008–2015 гг.), «Е-Е Сказка» (1982–2007 гг. more >>). Последняя монография (с текстом Ханнелоре Фобо): E-E WEIGHT. SLEEP. (2016 г. см. здесь >>).

Картины художника находятся в музейных коллекциях, в том числе в Русском музее и Музее искусства (Muzeum Sztuki) в Лодзи, а также в частных коллекциях России, США, Австралии, Германии, Англии, Франции, Финляндии и Швеции.

Ханнелоре Фобо, 2017.

In 2003, the German publishing house Konkursbuch Verlag Claudia Gehrke published E. Kozlov's series of early erotic drawings "The Leningrad Album”. The Italian curator Massimiliano Gioni received the book and instantly became a great admirer of the drawings ("It is such a powerful, beautiful thing that I kept thinking and thinking and thinking of it” more >>). He later made his personal choice of 150 drawings from the series for two exhibitions he curated: “Ostalgia“ at the New Museum, New York (2011, more >>) and the Venice Biennale (2013, more >>).

At Navicula Artis Gallery, Saint Petersburg, the complete series of 256 drawings and text pages will be presented for the first time. Views of the reverse of pages where text continues will also be shown. The artist wishes to draw attention to his project of a complete book edition displaying the reproductions in original size. The previous edition included about half of the drawings (in a reduced format), and it has also long been out of print.

The exhibition also presents collages from the cycle "Century XX”, part 1 (1989-2008). In 2004, E. Kozlov made extensive use of figures and objects from the "Leningrad Album” book edition – as cut-outs, sometimes colouring them in more >>. He turned them into central or accompanying elements of the pages, and used them as (fold-out) extensions more >>.

The artist defined this result as: “Diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies of contemporary art, as well as amber with flies.”

(E-E) Evgenij Kozlov (1955, Leningrad) was a leading member of the "New Artists”, founded by Timur Novikov in 1982. He has been living in Berlin since 1993. Since 2005 he has signed his works with the letters "E-E”

Typical for his approach to art are large-scale project such as "Miniatures in Paradise” (1995, more >>), "Century XX, part 2”  (2008-2015), and "E-E Fairy Tale” (1982-2007, more >>). A recent artist monograph with a text by Hannelore Fobo is "E-E WEIGHT. SLEEP” (2016, more >>).

Kozlov's works are in museum collections, among them the State Russian Museum, Saint Petersburg and the Muzeum Sztuki (Art Museum) Lodz, Poland, and in private collections (Russia, U.S.A., Australia, Germany, England, France, Finland and Sweden).
