Katerina Belkina at the Direktorenhaus

3th February – 26th February 2017

Until the Illustrative-Festival 2017 it will still take some more time – but in the meantime the festival venue, the Direktorenhaus, has some nice exhibitions to offer. At the moment the museum is hosting an exhibition of the talented Russian painter Katerina Belkina.

Katerina Belkina propels the characteristics of the Neo-Renaissance into the centre of topical issues. With the series Revival Katerina Belkina reinterprets the historical style of the neo-renaissance and formulates contemporary problems in context with art and psychology. In the last years her work is mainly influenced by staged self-portraits. In her award-winning work “Die Sünderin” she stages herself as a pregnant woman. In the background one can see Jesus Christ and the adulteress by Lucas Cranach the younger one. Belkina imitates the clothing of the adulteress and takes up her space by putting herself in front of her. That is how the women gets released from the mess and becomes the protagonist of the painting. With the series “Paint” Belkina combines artistic and photographic elements and imitates paintings of famous painters.

The exhibition can be visited from Friday, 3th February until Sunday, 26th February 2017. For information on fees and opening times visit: www.direktorenhaus.com/en/visit
