I remembered the quarantine for the cancellation and postponement of exhibitions, which I had planned to participate in this year. And also endless open calls, anyway dedicated to the coronavirus and self-isolation.

The whole world is talking about the same thing.
But if an artist remains an artist without a gallery, does a gallery still remains a gallery without an artist and spectators.
The impossibility of holding exhibitions started up an avalanche of online art content, daily activity in social networks in an effort to retain the audience and not let them forget about themselves, online auctions, groups selling works on Facebook. Is it really so necessary to always be in sight? Do modern galleries need premises or is Instagram enough? We are sitting at home and looking at the monitor, following more successful artists and galleries or a kind of Illusion of their success.

My work is rumpled hearts with quotes from refusals for applications, fleeting thoughts and outbursts of feelings, reflections on the need for open calls as a phenomenon of interaction between the gallery and the artist, as opposed to the direct interaction of the artist and his audience.

Today the image of the heart is associated with like, not love.
Until you are a young artist, you are looking for, but with the appearance of your own brand they are looking for you.
Art world is becoming more and more similar to Tinder.

Who is really looking for whom?

This world really lacks love. My art is intentionally so tender. My vulnerability is extremely serious. I use mirrors and paper to emphasize the fragility of this world and our feelings in it. I want people to look into themselves through my mirrors. I am a young artist from Russia. I live and work in St. Petersburg. I try to catch the elusive, fleeting moment. All the insignificant things in our life are the most important. A big place in my work is the theme of childhood. This is the time of the predominance of questions to the world around and the feeling of unreality of the usual things. I hate pompous themes. We cannot save this world until we save ourselves.
