The intensive development of futurism in Vladivostok in late 1919 and early 1920s is due to the activities of a number of organizers of artistic, literary and intellectual life, who dwelled that time in the city – Nikolai Aseev, Alexander Bogdanov, David Burliuk, Sergei Tretyakov. As a result, an institutional order for the creation of new art was established in the city, so that futuristic poetics were perceived by authors who were initially far from it. The author considers a futuristic episode in the work of the poetess Varvara Statieva and proves the key influence on her poetics perceived through the poetry of David Burliuk and Sergei Tretyakov on the images and worldview of Arthur Rimbaud. The article reconstructs her implicit dialogue with Sergei Tretyakov, questioning the prerequisites for her transition to the avant-garde from a more general modernist aesthetics, as special experience of the relationship between earthly and heavenly poetic images.
