Selfies have become a way of communication between people, communication. And the artists decided to engage this genre, moving from social networks and instagram for his paintings. Look at what they wanted to say.

Clara Golitsyn, the artist, which is 95 years old!

Moving on: the soundtrack of screaming gulls find two pictures of Clara Galitzine — “Sleeping girl” and “Selfie on the beach.” The peculiarity is that both paintings slashed on top of the figure by black lines. Clara will soon turn 95 years old! Managed to ask this fragile woman (the only artist who was present at the exhibition), what do the stripes on her drawing. “Lines create me a beat, they replace the music for me,” says Clara. The artist loves music, but about 10-15 years ago, began to lose his hearing. So the only way for her to feel the music is to put the lines that come from the contours of objects, and traverse the canvas (in this case, banner fabric).

It is unclear where their eyes: are they watching us (painfully bright eyes) or to my cell?

A funny series of selfies on the emo subculture, Maria Pogorzelski: “Emo heart”, “Emo with pigtails”, “Emo on the floor,” “the Girl with the camera”, — round and oval canvases with “sabachtani”. Here, of course, girls with black slant bangs, thickly painted gases, slender hands…

Naturally, organizers of an exhibition about the phenomenon of the selfie could not fail to please the audience, in fact, the object for self. And in addition to the paintings on the floor sits a large flock of seagulls — the sculpture of Alexander Padabed “Transition gulls over the channel”. Birds have a strong back, they are the size of geese, and somebody sits on them to make the.
