The exhibition "Irina Zatulovskaya. Flight to Egypt" (0+)


On March 2, at 16:00, the exhibition of the artist Irina Zatulovskaya “Flight to Egypt” will open in the space of the large exhibition hall of the museum.

The exhibition “Flight to Egypt” presents the works of the famous Russian artist created over the past 30 years of her work. Modern works are shown in dialogue with Egyptian antiquities. This dialogue turns out to be multidimensional, in which a person of modern culture recognizes himself in objects of great antiquity.

The title of the exhibition, “Flight to Egypt”, metaphorically reflects a long cultural continuity with reflections on life and death, on time and the authenticity of the inviolability of the present, on the memory and living of the moment as eternally lasting. The exhibition is devoid of superficial pathos, it immerses in the contemplation of the continuity of cultural tradition and the natural connection of phenomena separated by centuries.

The exposition is based on a special structure resembling a ziggurat, designed by Nadia Korbut and Kirill Ass.

The exhibition has already been presented at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and at the State Center for Contemporary Art in Nizhny Novgorod (Arsenal). The Voronezh exposition differs from the previous ones and includes Egyptian antiquities from its own collection.

The I.N. Kramskoy Voronezh Art Museum keeps a valuable collection of monuments of ancient Egyptian art, collected more than 200 years ago, the oldest of such collections in Russia. Items from this collection will be included in the exhibition, creating a new context for the perception of cultural values familiar to Voronezh residents.

The exhibition will last until April 9.
