Artguide Editions with the support of the Aksenov Family Foundation published Flower Fields, a two-volume monograph by Pavel Pepperstein.
Pavel Pepperstein's Flower Fields is an unusual and multifaceted publication that, on the one hand, illuminates the creative path of the famous artist, writer, cinematographer, rapper and fashion designer, and on the other, is a bold (secretly challenging) experiment in the field of book design. The monograph in two volumes is an example of half-autobiographical (retrospective) and half-utopian (perspective) auto-commenting and philosophical interpretation of an artistic process that can be considered purely individual and socially significant at the same time.
Pavel Pepperstein is an artist, writer, filmmaker, rapper and fashion designer. In 2014, he has been awarded the Kandinsky Prize in the category "Project of the Year". Since the 1990s, he has published more than twenty essays on the problems of contemporary art and a number of books, including The Mythogenic Love of Casts (in two volumes, 1999 and 2002), co-authored with Sergei Anufriev and Interpretation of Dreams (2005) with Viktor Mazin. As part of the publishing program of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, two collections of his stories have been published: The Age of Attractions and The Mystery of Our Time. In 2019, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art held a major retrospective of Pavel Pepperstein entitled A Man as a Frame for the Landscape.
The book presentation took place on March 10, 2020 at the Garage Lecture Hall. Pavel Pepperstein presented his publication together with the TV presenter and collector Andrei Malakhov.
