GRAFFITI. Exhibition of Natalia Korf-Ivanyuk. From September 20 to October 16, 2022.
Graffiti is sincerity, eroticism, provocation at the fracture of generations, a connection between the present and the past times.
Today the primordial times seem like a distant past to us. At the same time primordial times continued to exist throughout history. It has been organically interwoven into the culture of the following years.
There is a primordial erotic magic that brightly showes the image of the woman who has an opportunity to give someone life. There is an amazing female nature. There is Paleolithic Venus. She can refresh you when you are burning with thirst, and warm you when your heart is cold. She fills your soul with quiet tenderness, when it is in doubt.
