Pandemic fairy tales by Masha Trotzky

Exhibition: 05-26 May 2021 
Private view: 05 May 2021 at 14.00

DUO Contradiction Gallery will present a solo exhibition by established Russian artist and designer Masha Trotzky “Pandemic fairy tales”.

The era of Pandemic came unexpectedly and changed the world in a quite dramatic way. Everything became different: ethics, aesthetics, language of communication, life style and human rights. 

While Sweden turned out to be a relatively safe territory, the rest of Europe actually spent a year in a regime of house arrest and complete desocialization. 

How this experience affected people’s minds and destinies is yet to be studied by psychologists. Masha Trotzky, an artist quarantined in Belgium, presents her version and chronicle of events.

The exhibition will represent several illustrations created by the artist for British newspapers in 2020, her attempts to rethink “New Normality” through the prism of myths, biblical histories and classical paintings.  The collection will be shown for the first time and opens a series of pandemic exhibitions by Masha Trotzky in Sweden, Germany and Montenegro.

Born in Moscow, Masha Trotzky started her art career in 2009, became the “Best Photographer of Russia” (2010) National Award winner, received the Silver Graphis Award in New York (2016) and Aesthetica Art Prize in UK (2015). Artist and jewellery designer, she has had solo exhibitions in London, Paris, Moscow, Florence, Malmö, Barcelona, Hamburg, Brussels, Milan and Bologna.

The vernissage will take place on June 5 14.00-17.00 and feature a performance by a famous Belarusian artist and activist, also known as Fröken Zhu.

The exhibition will last 3 weeks, from 5 May to 26 May 2021.
