On May 26, an exhibition of works by Gregory Emvy ‘The Light of My Life’ will open at the Red Hall of the Winzavod centre for contemporary art. The ArtVisioner agency collaborates with the artist and supports his participation in the exhibition.
‘The Light of My Life’ explores the cultural code of self-identification. The combination of different textures and the play on contrasts of shapes and colors are characteristic features of the artist’s creative method. The exhibition will feature 12 works combining elements of Russian architecture with brutalist architecture.
“The timing of the exhibition is by no means accidental. Right now we are all looking for light and support in order to be able to live, work, create. In this project, I am trying to combine important things for me: faith in myself and finding my own “fire”, which gives strength to go further and develop, a reminder that I am Russian, through the prism of the culture of architraves, and this is the reason to be proud of my roots, my history and culture” – Gregory Emvy.
