Exposition "Fairytales? Sounds good"

Do you believe in fairytales? Dragons, animals with human traits, people with magical powers? Fairytales were handed down orally over the centuries, from one generation to the next, and those narrating the tales would often alter them or mix scenes from one with those from another, at times giving rise to a third, new account. Fairytales help us discover ourselves and form ourselves. They help us confront fears that we hide from ourselves but that our subconscious makes re-emerge in dreams. Or they help us accept with a smile things our reason deems impossible but which we know could potentially occur inside ourselves.

The exposition "Fairytales? Sounds good" will present work by three contemporary artists: Vadim Fishkin (Russia–Slovenia), Andrea Crespo (USA), Reza Aramesh (Iran–UK).

And now,

once upon a time…
