Marusya Borisova-Sevastyanova

The Totibadze Gallery will host the second solo exhibition of Marusya Borisova-Sevastyanova from October 5 to November 7.

I am convinced that every idea limits the artist. Intelligence is a thing overvalued by our time, and it is time for it to give way to the primacy of feelings. We aimed to be smart instead of happy. But knowledge increases sorrow. If they don't serve the senses.
I worked hard, studied hard, honed my technique and my ability to articulate accurately. This kind of upbringing was accepted. Therefore, my choice in favor of feelings stretched out for some time, did not happen in one day.
This retrospective exhibition begins from the very period when nudity was a figurative concept for me. Emotional nudity began with a naked body, it is the letters of the alphabet, from which words and meanings are yet to be born.
Gradually, I gave up sketches and concepts, relieving every minute in the workshop from any restrictions. The experiment showed that harmony lives between black and white squares. Then I saw that it was not the rejection of knowledge and technology in favor of feelings that resonated in the era of the ensuing chaos. Their relationship works, their general maximum manifestation. Manifestation as a dialogue, as a dance, as a conflict, as a confession, as a game, as a beginning and an end - at the same time.
Just like a moment is not a void in the interval between life and life, but the presence of absolutely everything at the same time, here and now. All possibilities at once, seen on a white sheet.
