    "SACRED FOREST". Valeriy Pchelin & Igor Mikhailenko
    Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art presents a joint exhibition by Valeriy Pchelin and Igor Mikhailenko showcasing abstract paintings and sculptural objects. A sanctuary reserved for ceremonies, the sacred forest manifests itself to those who step outside the limits of everyday existence. This mysterious and enchanting realm takes on the form of a deity inducing the ambivalent feelings of awe and rapture. Art is also a kind of a sacred forest, accessible only to the chosen few. For both artists, shape and colour are the principal forms of expression.

    "LIFE IN THE GENDAI ERA". Yuji Hiratsuka
    "LIFE IN THE GENDAI ERA". Yuji Hiratsuka
    Erarta Museum presents an exhibition by a Japanese artist who uses a special printmaking technique combining chine-collé and intaglio. Yuji Hiratsuka’s solo exhibition Life in the Gendai Era (that is, in the current time) takes the viewer on a journey into the highly original creative world of an artist who belongs to the Western and Eastern cultural realms simultaneously. In a witty and whimsical way, the artist reinvents the traditional ukiyo-e — pictures of the floating world — transplanting the classical Japanese narratives into the contemporary big city life and juxtaposing them against the universal images of the cosmopolitan Western culture.
