Gym Lesson offers a colourless documentation of children at play, reminiscent of Soviet social painting stripped of all joyous idealism. Emptying the image of vivacious allure, Sasnal’s painting operates as palimpsest: through its impartial and sterile surface, only faint traces of historical significance remain.
