Anastasia Poliakova

“Way out – create” – here is the everyday life of an artist, answer to the issues artist faces today. The show comprises works of several years representing artist’s inner world full of anxiety, doubt, overcoming and the perception of the outer world. In the center is the sculpture “The museum of the glory of the labour migrants”, the free interpretation of “The birds” by Aristophanes. Author addresses the social context, asks about the real value of the physical work of the laborers who literally toil for our future. The object was on display at the project “Take-off. Forecast” at the VDNKh exhibition venue. The other works are paintings which take us through the moods. I Inner feelings of the artist reflect the outer world, the reality. Unconsciously comparing the work of laborers with the work of an artist, which is often underestimated and complicated, but is a large part of the public life, the artist shares her answer: “Way out – create”.
