PARADISE ROW - GOSHA OSTRETSOV | PLAY WORKS

 

Gosha Ostretsov is one of Russia's leading contemporary artists. Since the late 1990's Ostretsov has been working on The New Government project, a parodic Gesamtkunstwerk on the nature of power and despotism in post-Soviet Russia that combines masks, painting, sports, text, fashion, advertising, photography, performance art, video, comics, and other media to create a parallel world in which "masked aliens" have taken over the world and, aided by a compliant mass communications industry, rule it with an iron fist.
