The exhibition is called "Siharuli", which means joy in Georgian. The exhibition is called in Georgian because two of its participants - Tina Chkhikvishvili and Tutu Kiladze from Georgia, Tanya Sergeyeva Facebook wrote that she graduated from the Tbilisi Academy of Arts, and Yulia Kartoshkina as if took all the colors of the Georgian landscape in her paintings.
Sikharuli and Iquaruli, joy and love are the main components of Georgian life, which are so lacking in Moscow. How long have you been rejoicing? What are you happy about? What is the joy for you? Do you know how to be happy? Answer these simple questions and maybe our lives will get better!
"For me, joy is something that anticipates a sense of love. The feeling of love is a great thing, not love for any particular person, although it is also a great thing. But the feeling of its presence. Maybe that's why the Georgian word for joy and love is so similar. It is a joy to come to Tbilisi and be with your beloved friends! The joy of returning home to St. Petersburg, to see the family, the joy of painting," says artist Tanya Sergeeva. She was born in Leningrad in 1976.
