In the end of the zero years, Sergey Anufriev, who became famous in the late 80's as an active figure of the "second wave" of Moscow Conceptualism and, in particular, of the group Inspection Medical Hermeneutics, as well as one of the authors (the second being Pavel Pepperstein) of the acclaimed novel "The Mythogenic Love of Castes", began preaching a new trend in art and a new kind of human activity called Patternism.
Patternism aims to create a visual language of the future, which would - first of all - communicate the spirit and the emotion using one’s cultural heritage and determining narrative criteria. The goal of Patternism is narrating in a new language, the criteria for which are: Content, Suspense, and Trigger.
Sergey Anufriev, having consistently advocated the guild principle of the artistic community organization, along with artists Arsen Savadov, Sergey Bugaev Africa, Andrey Monastirsky, Arkady Nasonov, art group Russia, Viktor Pivovarov, and others (total 18 participants), as well as with his wife and muse, artist Katiusha Chalaya, bring their movement manifestos to the 4-th
Moscow Biennale, expressing the basic model of Perception through an installation. “Because art is wandering in the Labyrinth, it is precisely this kind of content – the symbolization of creative journey – that lies at the heart of the installation. Thus, on the inner, unaccountable level, the viewers will be able to share the creative process and take part in the search of Patternism development” (Sergey Anufriev).
