Behind the Brain” presents the latest chapter in Tcherepnin’s ongoing saga of monsters living between worlds. Here we meet two new characters, Dr. Time and Pinky Spirit, standing amidst artworks from their own domain. Theirs is a place defined by simulacra, where objects constellate in holistic arrangements. Paintings by monsters and their portraits by humans juxtaposed gesture and ways of seeing provide us a glimpse of an alternate universe, offering a slice of their optical and cognitive register.
You are invited to submerge yourself in the architectural head, to traverse the facial border and plunge into the pineal whirlpool. Behind the brain, the third eye watches images plastered on an ossien wall. Crossing over the border we find ourselves to be visitors, guests in the realm of the monsters. Ambassadors from earth.
