Letter from the Island: Necrorealism




Cementing its reputation as one of London’s most innovative galleries, Orel Art UK breaks new ground with the first ever exhibition of Necrorealist art in Britain, one of most radical underground movements in recent Russian history. With major shows devoted to Necrorealism coming up at the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Necrorealism is finally acknowledged as an artistic movement after years of debate and controversy. Letter from the Island brings together an astonishing and unsettling combination of paintings, installations and films, spanning from the 1980s to today, by the movement’s three great representatives: Sergei Serp, Evgeny Yufit, and Vladimir Kustov.
