Shcherbenko Art Centre is delighted to present "The Art of Seeing" project, opening on July 20, 2016. The project will bring together in one space the works of Ukrainian artists with design objects from the leading Ukrainian studios.
The art of seeing, noticing and analyzing images is something that contributes to new experiences, impressions and knowledge. The works of art no longer live in a sacred space as if the icons, but their visual images are now present everywhere and we can read them in the form of information. The space is full of such messages. It is possible to stop, immerse and reduce the time lap between the moment of the artwork’s creation and our acquaintance with it. It is only important to look, and, of course, to see.
"Initially the paintings were an integral part of the building, for which they were created ... The uniqueness of every painting was a part of the uniqueness of its place in space", - says famous English writer, critic and artist John Berger in his work "The Art of Seeing". The synthesis of art and design begins with the human desire for beauty in all spheres of life.
The aesthetics of everyday life influences modern interior design in the same way as the presence of beautiful things in the domestic environment aesthetically develops the human. For the time of the project, Shcherbenko Art Centre’s space will transform into a spacious living room, the place in the house to welcome the guests. The visitors will also get an opportunity to witness the symbiosis of art and design objects in the context of contemporary Ukrainian life.
