Tanya Akhmetgalieva: Hello World!
Welcome to the opening reception
in the presence of the artists,
Thursday March 13, 2014, 5-7 pm.
The core of Tanya Akhmetgalieva’s (b. 1983) new works ponders how the digitalized modern world has affected our perception of reality. Social media has created a new, intense platform for reflecting our everyday reality and forming our self-image. The boundaries between public and private have become fluid, and individualism is dramatically rising.
Akhmetgalieva reveals technical skillfulness in her works, which have been produced with mixed media. She paints by sewing and mixes graphics and textile art freely. The artist’s strong ideological positions are also present in the new works.
