It all just seems to you
The new layer "It all just seems to you" by Russian artist Andrey Syaylev appeared on the WALL.
"This is a work that casts doubt on the undeniable fact of meeting the viewer with the work. Claiming it, the phrase denies itself, including itself, literally dissolving in the eyes of the viewer. Its main purpose is to make the viewer doubt the existence of the usual order of things. This is an exercise for developing critical thinking skills, which is necessary to arm a visitor who came to the exhibition at the Winzavod Centre for Contemporary Art", says Andrey Syaylev.
