About works

Dmitri Gutov's bullet-notes are dedicated to Dmitry Shostakovich.
Kalashnikov automatic cartridges welded to steel wire recreate the partita from the piano trio 'In Memory of Sollertinsky' (1944). Ivan Ivanovich Sollertinsky, the musicologist and critic who was for many years a friend of Shostakovich, died in 1944 after his evacuation to Novosibirsk. The whistle of bullets.
Gutov created his project in 1993. During the storming of Moscow's White House. The whistle of bullets.
This project by one of the most intellectual and complex artists in contemporary Russian art, editorial board member of scholarly journals and founder of philosophy societies, is clear and precise. The sound of bullets continues to this day. Gutov's work is a dream in which the sound of bullets disappears and the music remains.
