“Optimistic studies” – is a collective exhirition of russian painters on the theme of ageing. The project’s insparation lies in the work of russian biologist and gerontologist Ilia Mechnikov’s book.
Together with Vova Chernyshev we made works on parts of old fence that stayed near a river in Vova’s countryside Mogilitsi. Built anew, the fence got a new form and my part of work was made by scratching and etching of the upper layer of dark old wood.
