Russian President Dmitry Medvedev thanked the government of Israel
Topic: Russian Media
October 7, 2008 - 16:00 RHIO (PMOH) Jerusalem News

THE KREMLIN, MOSCOW.- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

The Russian head of state emphasised that economic cooperation between the two countries has a solid basis and expressed his hope for its future successful development.

Speaking about a Middle Eastern peace settlement, the President declared that Russia will continue to play a constructive and active role in this process.

Dmitry Medvedev thanked the government of Israel for its decision to transfer the St. Sergius Metochion in Jerusalem to the Russian Federation.

This compound was built by the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society more than a hundred years ago to receive Russian pilgrims. Three-year talks on the transfer of the St. Sergius Metochion to Russia's jurisdiction ended on 5 October 2008 after the Israeli government made the corresponding decision.

The compound requires major repairs and restoration work. In April 2008 10 million rubles from the President's Reserve Fund were tentatively allocated for this purpose.

80th anniversary of the Russian Army Academic Song and Dance Ensemble.
Topic: Russian Army Ensemble
October 3, 2008 - Kremlin News
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sent a greeting to the participants in the commemorative evening devoted to the 80th anniversary of the Russian Army Academic Song and Dance Ensemble.

The greeting reads, in part:
"Over the past decades your unique ensemble has rightfully won widespread fame and public acclaim. One of Russia’s first military musical ensembles, you performed concerts at the front during the Great Patriotic War, inspiring our soldiers and officers and bringing us victory over the enemy. The current generation of aleksandrovtsev honourably continues this tradition and their art supports the Russian troops in their difficult military endeavours.

Today you repeatedly conquer prestigious venues with your inimitable performing style, effervescent temperament and perfect technique. And of course your art unites all those who sincerely love Russia and its rich culture".

The A. V. Alexandrov Russian army twice red-bannered academic song and dance ensemble is the largest artistic military ensemble in Russia.

The ensemble has more than two thousand pieces in its repertoire. They include folk songs and dances, military dances, sacred music, classical works by Russian and foreign composers and the masterpieces of world pop music.

The ensemble is world-famous thanks to its excellent voices, optimistic style of execution and tours through more than 70 countries around the world.

Survival in A State of Shocking Reality

22 September 2008 By Alexandra Odynova / Special to The Moscow TimesTony Matelli's solo exhibition "Survival" is showing for the first time in Moscow at the Gary Tatintsian Gallery.

Matelli is a promising American artist, famous for his provocative and hyperrealistic silicon sculptures of humans and animals.

His work as been shown in Paris, New York and Berlin, and appearing in Moscow are several of his best-known pieces, including "Old Enemy, New Victim" and "Sleepwalker" -- a life-size sculpture of a man in white briefs with his arms outstretched, as if he is about to walk into something.

"His art is not at all provocative. It's concerned with the ideas and emotions of ordinary people," said Victoria Pukemova, the gallery's director.

"We have been cooperating with Tony since the opening of Tatintsian Gallery in 2005, when his works were displayed in the 'We Can Do It' exhibition," Pukemova said. "Since then, we have kept an eye on the development of his technique. ... The artist has been progressing with his work in the States."

While some of his works are shocking, there is a grain of humor in his self-portrait, "Double Meat Head." The sculpture is a puzzle of real meat products representing two stages of Matelli's existence. The first stage is abundance, signified with fresh meat. The second is decay, in which the flesh falls into rotten disorder.

"These states exist in every other being," Pukemova said.

"Sleepwalker" also embodies some of Matelli's own feelings and experiences, his perceptions of society.

"It shows how Tony felt outside this world and its universally accepted rules," Pukemova said. "Tony Matelli often describes himself as a communicator."

Each sculpture takes several months to create, and it can take several years for Matelli to put together an exhibition.

He started his career as an assistant to Jeff Koons, one of the highest-paid artists today, who is renowned for his kitsch works, such as a giant puppy made out of flowers and grass, as well as his tacky sculptures like the gold-plated statue "Michael Jackson and Bubbles," representing the singer and his pet chimpanzee.

Koons' influence is evident in the transparent themes of the installations. One of the sculptures, "Old Enemy," shows one chimpanzee strangling another, while a third chimpanzee is chewing on the victim's leg.

"All of my sculptures are in a state of compromise. They are lost, wounded, tangled and shitty," Matelli said. "This is everyone's general state at one point or another."

"Survival" runs through Nov. 15, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Gary Tatintsian Gallery, located at 3/8 Ulitsa Ilyinka, Bldg. 5. M. Ploshchad Revolyutsii. Tel. 921-2102, http://www.tatintsian.com/
