"Entrance from Kozhumyatska" is a personal project of artist Anna Shcherbyna, created as part of a creative residency from the Bereznytskyi Foundation.
The exhibition is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until October 25 inclusive. Free entrance.
The focus of the artist's work was a place — the exhibition space of the Bereznitsky Art Foundation and the street behind its walls. The project represents the author's feelings and thoughts about the flow of states, interpenetration of time and space, internal and external. What is depicted in the paintings and drawings of Anna Shcherbina refers both to the past of Kozhumyatska Street, with its dilapidated buildings and wild thickets, and to the future, in which nature can once again prevail over human creations.
