Этот "неофициальный", "личный" плакат Е-Е создал для второй выставки независимых ленинградских художников, проходившей во Дворце Молодежи с 5 по 20 апреля 1983 г. Фигуры первоначально предназначались для "SIT VENIA VERBO. Традиции XX века" (собрание Государственного Русского музея, Санкт-Петербург), а прямоугольное отверстие отсылает к "НОЛЬ ОБЪЕКТУ" Тимура Новикова и Ивана Сотникова (1982). На оборотной стороне плаката расписались 35 из 44 художников.

E-E created this personalised exhibition poster for the second presentation of independent Leningrad artists in the Palace of the Youth, April 5 - 20, 1983. The figures were first designed for "SIT VENIA VERBO. Traditions of the XX Century" (collection of the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg), and the rectangular hole refers to Timur Novikov's and Ivan Sotnikov's "NOL OBYEKT" from 1982. 35 of 44 artists signed on the back of the poster.

This work was made as a personalised exhibition poster for the presentation of гWorks of Leningrad Artists" in the Palace of the Youth, from April 5 - 20, 1983. The rectangular hole in the upper half and the double figure left to it with 0 prints on both hands refer to Timur Novikov's and Ivan Sotnikov's "NOL OBYEKT" from 1982, a conceptual work which had created an almost iconoclastic controversy.

In its technical aspects this work pays tribute to the Russian avantgarde of the early twentieth century and uses visual effects developed for print, especially posters: stencils for figures and graphic effects as well as geometric fonts, here achieved with letraset letters. The clear edges of the figures are in contrast with the soft texture of the gouache surface of the bodies, applied with slightly irregular brushstrokes. The colours of nature - red, green, light blue, ochre, yellow, charcoal grey - against the background of the light brown paper are a further homage to the twenties.

The figures themselves, however, in their elegant, well-defined movements and well-cut suits, belong to an international world, and, most likely, to a world of business. As a matter of fact, these figures are only some of many more first worked out for the painting "SIT VENIA VERBO. Traditions of the XX Century" (collection of the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg). This painting, also from 1983, of a much larger format, shows them walking and standing in the spacious hall of an airport, displaying the calm self-assurance of those who know that they can rely on their abilities.

It is not clear whether this poster was ever shown during the exhibition, but the artist recalls vividly how he collected the signatures of the participants of the exhibition on the last day of the show, just before it was closed. He knew that most artists would come together on this occasion, and he was eager to collect as many signatures as possible. This was a unique oppurtunity to fix a historical moment in time: it had been only the second official manifestation of the new wave of the so-called unofficial" leningrad art. At the end of the day, he proved to be quite successful: out of 43 (44) artists, 35 had signed.
