About The Event
Xposed Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by multimedia artist Yuliya Lanina featuring a multi-channel video installation and animatronic sculptures.
Playful and quirky on the exterior, Lanina’s work uses whimsy as a device to draw closer inspection, leading to greater awareness and introspection among viewers. Once engaged, the viewer often finds evocations of the dark matter that is the underbelly of human existence, striking a primordial balance. Lanina’s images are inspired by the Surrealist and Dada approach, with the subconscious taking the lead, and leaving analytical thinking behind, and by embracing the nonsensical and surprising.
On October 19th, Yuliya Lanina and Yuu Fujita will perform within the projected animations and sculptures, exploring the themes of connection and isolation, seeing and being seen. Music by José Martinez and Vladimir Rannev.
