December 4, Gallery 21 opens the personal exhibition of Maria Safronova "Experimental Field." At the exhibition, the viewer will see scenes familiar from childhood to everyone who was born in the USSR in the 60-80s.
Childhood is an experimental field for obtaining knowledge directly, without substantiation and theories, and it is on it that the further perception of the surrounding world depends.
Childhood is an experimental field for obtaining knowledge directly, without substantiation and theories, and it is on it that the further perception of the surrounding world depends. According to the latest research by scientists from the Center for Molecular Medicine and Therapy, the experience gained in early childhood not only influences the development of the psycho-emotional background of the child, but also leaves a trace in the molecular structure of DNA, and thus leads to selective inclusion and deactivation of personality genes, therefore, it affects the behavior and way of thinking of a person.
These works evoke ambiguous emotions, without giving ratings to our past, but merely recalling the most iconic memories from childhood.
Maria writes: “The project is dedicated to children's games and activities related to experiments and experiences, both voluntary and forced, which are filled with the childhood of any person.”
Unity, insecurity, flight, fear, competition, a sense of freedom, effort, tension, curiosity, trespassing, happiness are similar conditions familiar to every viewer and become the emotional backdrop of the new series of paintings by Mary.
