Our sixth edition of the new exhibition series called "einblick" will be with Julia Soboleva. "einblick" is a new series of one-week-exhibitions in our gallery windows. Every week we will open a small exhibition on two wood wall walls we build especially for this occasion. We invite one artist who will show his artworks on these walls for one week only, and they will be visible through our windows so you can see them from the outside, day and night, as the current regulations don't allow any visitors.
Julia Soboleva is a Latvia born, UK based mix-media artist. Her process involves painting and collage on found photographic imagery. Meditating on the themes of madness and reality, Soboleva is constructing mysterious narratives with ominous overtones and absurd humour. Being born and raised in a post era and not being able to find her own place against the complicated past of her nation, Soboleva explores the notions of family, taboo and transgenerational trauma in her work. She obtained a Master's Degree in Illustration at Manchester School of Art in 2018, and is now working as an educator and freelance designer.
For this edition, I will talk with Julia Soboleva live over Zoom, at 8:15 on Wednesday April 14, and you can also watch us live on Facebook as well! The talk will be in english.
