ABOUT

The inaugural exhibition was refers to Charles Baudelaire’s essay ’’Le Peintre de la vie moderne’’ and was dedicated to international artistic personalities who combine diversity with beauty.
Inspired by Charles Baudelaire essay on the fleetingness of time and physical permanence, which reflects on issues of transience and perduration, we must ask ourselves if beauty truly is ephemeral and whether we may try and contribute to a deeper understanding of this forever relevant topic. This is especially true when it comes to the world of art, and its role in the currents of both the life today and
that of a future contemporaneity.
The exhibition examines whether the art of a neo-ecological posthumanism could arise and be perpetuated by transforming the ongoing process of disappearance of humanity. Is it the transformative aspect of art what carries us through the beauty of life,  metamorphoses, its symbols and our overall permanence in it?
The presented works bring together elements of different viewpoints related to the artistic reflection on the perpetuation of humankind in relation to contemporary life trends.


‘’Modernity, that is the ephemeral, the fleeting, the contingent, half of art, the other half of which is the eternal and immovable.’’ Charles Baudelaire.

''Down the Rabbit Hole'' 

- Anna Nezhnaya - art objects and Paintings

11.12.2021 - 21.02.2022  

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Anna Nezhnaya (Moscow, 1987) lives and works in Berlin since 2016. With her background as a trained graphical artist from the Moscow State University for Printing Arts and Graphics, Anna explores traditional images in contemporary settings. For Anna, digital drawing is the perfect connection for classical painting to light art, serving as studies for her neon sculptures. Light plays a major role in her works as she is painting light objects in dark architectural spaces. Furthermore Anna Nezhnaya is developing experimental ways to creates surface structure with new painting techniques. Artist reflects on topic of grotesque feminism, exploring images of femaleness in terms of mysticism and metaphor.
...Anna Nezhnaya explores remaining sacral spaces in contemporary life, diverse spiritual traditions in the West and their transformations during recent decades. Her main area of interest is space in a non-didactic sense. Her work oscillates between objectivity and abstraction (manual as digital) and explores identity in the post Internet age and the slippery divide between reality and virtual reality, in paintings, light objects, drawings...
