From October 29 to November 14, the exhibition of the Ukrainian Art Project "RE: CREATION" will take place at the Govedarou gallery in Thessaloniki. As part of the project, the Greek public will be presented the work of more than 15 bright Ukrainian artists. The project was organized by the ArtLine Cultural Center under the auspices of the Consulate of Ukraine in Thessaloniki. The exhibition is designed to present to the Greek audience a variety of techniques, styles and creative approaches of contemporary Ukrainian artists. The exhibition will feature both classical painting and unique original techniques of painting on glass and wood, sculpture, ceramics and exclusive jewelry from the famous Ukrainian brand "Fursa Fashion".

The project was conceived and was to be presented to the Greek audience in May this year. But there was a quarantine that seemed to paralyze life both externally and internally. Each of us and the world as a whole had to comprehend himself in new realities. For some, this pause was a stimulus for a creative explosion, for some a moment of silence, a deepening. But one way or another, the project, designed to highlight the place of creative impulse, creative understanding of reality in the era of high technology and high speeds, during this time of "global pause" proved to be even more relevant.

The world, locked in the limited space of apartments, turned just to what we used to take for granted, namely to art. The quarantined man turned to the book, viewed many of the Museum's exhibits online, viewed masterpieces of cinema and listened to music of all time.

So the project "RE: CREATION" offers to look behind the scenes of the "creative laboratory" of Ukrainian artists, to explore what becomes the nourishing resource that pushes to action and new achievements, what kinds and works of world art are reflected in the paintings of contemporary Ukrainian artists, to track the interaction of different arts and cultures in the creative process.

This is how Marianna Abramova explores the theme of theater in our lives, where we are spectators and at the same time creators of the reality that is hidden behind the scenes and is about to open to our vision.

Irina Akimova is inspired by Shakespeare’s all-time plays and interprets images of Romeo and Juliet’s eternal love, as well as the inevitable drama of the Montecchi and Capuletti conflict in an abstract way, capturing the casts of peak emotional states.
