“Look into the Sky”
by Dima Alekseev
From the artist:
The main idea of my exhibition is to reflect on the global processes that are currently taking place in the world.
I’m talking about human migrations that are caused by wars… I believe if we compare them to the natural phenomena – the closes thing would be a tectonic shift. Fundamental transformation and profound reordering…
The topic of fugitives and refugees has been especially close to my heart since 2016, when I realized that it’s time for me and my family to leave Russia.
Since that time all my works are one way or another related to this topic. Russian-Ukrainian war gave me additional impetus for further exploration in this direction.
I explore the stages the person goes through while reconciling with this new status – from pain and loss, feeling totally alien and unwanted in a new place, to nostalgia, homesickness and hope to return, transforming into realization that return isn’t possible… to very slowly accepting this new place and welcoming new opportunities, to first smiles of success.
I see the innate fragility of human nature – both physical and spiritual, emotional – and try to convey it through my art.
