The “Collector’s eye” is an annual special project of the fair dedicated to private collections. From 2014 the exhibition booth is an important part of the non commercial Cosmoscow program.
This year the “Collector’s eye” presents selected artworks from Vera and Alexey Priymas’ collection (Moscow) and Evgeny Khamin’ collection (Voronezh). The exhibition is based on an association game and reveals the inner sensuous life of the collection. The artworks are selected according to simple binary categories of perception: peaceful and dramatic, graceful and brutal, funny and serious, realistic and abstract and so on. In these categories the exhibition easily places together pieces by Valery Koshlyakov, Semyon Faibisovich, Dimitri Krasnopevtsev, Pyotr Belenok from the Priymas’ collection; and works by Oleg Tselkov, Mikhail Chernyshov, Igor Chelkovsky, Oscar Rabin from Evgeny Khamin’s collection.
