Regame by Artist Oleg Mavromati

 Zverev Center of Modern Art has opened an exhibition of Oleg Mavromati.

      Oleg Mavromati is mostly known as a radical actionist. He became famous in 2000 with the performance Distrust the Eyes, in the course of which his palms were spiked to a wooden cross. Soon after the action the artist was put on a charge of encitement of ethnic and interreligious strife and had to emigrate.

      Another mind-blowing action was arranged by Oleg Mavromati in 2010. He suggested everyone vote online for him to live or die; had the number of votes for his death exceeded the number of votes for his life twice, the computer would have allegedly killed him with an automatic electrical charge.

      After all that a small series of drawings akin to children's coloring books with superheroes looks folly.

      The exhibition will take place from March 20 till March 29.
