New Russian Museum

My dad sent me this article about this museum in Russia. I did not get enough time to read the article, so I post it here so I can have a second look ...and share.

The photo to the left is from the page entitled "Avdei Ter-Oganyan’s art studio. Berlin."
The museums' web page is:

The Stones in St. Petersburg

David Ter-Oganyan was born in Rostov-on-Don, 1981, lives and works in Moscow. He attended the Contemporary Art School set up by his father, Avdei Ter-Oganyan, which gave birth to a whole generation of Moscow artists who later created the well-known group Radek.

This is not a bomb.The project �This is not a bomb� is a series of objects produced from everyday things, clockwork bits and wires. The project, which is located on the margin of �horrible and comical�, is aimed at a critical conceptualization of the problem of �terrorist threat as nonexistent�. This is not a bomb.

Clearly Avdei's boy is really smart. I hope his dad's O.K. My dad's in the hospital, after a real major operation. His life'll never be the same.
