Under the title Re-Constructivism the artist will be showcasing a new series of photos inspired by the oeuvre of Russian avant-garde artists such as Kazimir Malevich, Vladimir Tatlin and Alexander Rodchenko. The impetus for the creation of the project was the production of the The Seagull by the re- nowned choreographer, John Neumeier, for the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theatre. Having photographed ballet dancers for many years, in this project Glynin wanted to move away from the use of motion dynamics and instead show the expression, highlighted by the sharp static poses and the bold graphic lines of the dancer's bodies. The idea of combining the art of ballet and Russian Avant-Garde in photography intrigued the artist. Similar experiments have been explored in Russia in the 1920s, but survived only through rare sketches for avant-garde productions. In this way Re-Constructivism was born.
