“Canvases by Rinat Voligamsi remind of a black-and-white pictorial review and war-time sketchbooks of the Soviet period. Using the style of an archive document, the artist consummately paints impossible, absurd stories. The ironic, post-conceptualist optics of Rinat Voligamsi demolishes ideological structures of pathos an heroism, and the status of a document confirming reality is doubted by reality itself.”

– Alexander Evangeli
