Exhibition "Kawarga. Apocalypse. 21.12" includes a dozen of large-scale sculptures combined in one installation which incarnate artist's old dream about the end of the world. These sculptures are as metaphorical as they are real in their reflection of the artist's thinking about the fine line of transition from a chaotic to a structural state and back in the process of evolution of the humanity. It is clearly a metaphysical outlook on the human being as a tiny particle of the universe which is inseparable from the Earth and its resources.

The artist is interested in the issues referred to the evolution of human species and those of the cyclic and spiral development processes which are characterized by a constant repetition and overlapping of the formations emerging from the depth of civilization.

Dmitry Kawarga project marks highlights the artist's role as one of the leaders of the new national sculpture who, at the same time, is capable of using plastic images to address such burning issues as global apocalypse titled the "End of The World". The exhibits reflect further the ideas of paleogeomorphology which have been lately developed by Kawarga. These include the artefacts from the "Paleogeomorphological Cores" series which demonstrate the development of the mankind through some sort of "cultural rock samples" produced from the civilizational thickness.

An Exhibition in Barbarian-Art Gallery February 2012

Sculptures from «Paleo-Geo-Morphology Cores» are artefacts of the human development. Convenience, the cultural «samples of a breed», has been extracted from the thicknesses of civilization. In the section of the object the viewer may see numerous compressed layers of industrial humus, amorphous and constructive form-creations, taking their start from the deep bowels of the earth.

When a human is engaging in art, he agrees to be in the world, without appropriating it, but collecting the senses, scattered senses, hidden senses in the land . "To be in the World" means "to live in," be aware of their concern about the place of residence, residence, cultivate and study it. "Living in" is showing in the Project as comforting protective sacral reciprocity.

Project by Dmitry Kawarga "Paleogeomorfologiya" appears in the concept of "sacralized reciprocity" as a configuration of the layers of history and culture as a critically interpenetration from the past to the present, manifest of memory's symptom.

Created the story, his images take up a radical novelty, reinventing the original. They are becoming the common property of the historian and the artist, and they are worrying discussion's fields around us. Their interpretation of the elements developed in the inside-out question - who are we? Where we from? And where are we going? Staying at the level of myth, the world of objects found by Dmitry Kawarga and continues to maintain its mental functions indispensable to the chthonic subterranean subconscious life of the art area. The world of found objects by Dmitry Kawarga remaining at the myth level, continues to keep the mental functions, inseparable from chthonic and underground subconscious life of art territory.
