An exhibition of paintings by young artist Yana Knight has opened at the Russian Centre in Brussels. It is called "My country." And we are not talking about the state where Yana Knight lives, but about the country created by her imagination. The artist in her works tells the stories of the inhabitants of this country. From melancholic, philosophic and tragic characters who cross the roads of loneliness, to sensible and logical, who in their search for structures live somewhere between the borders, stretching the horizons.

The materials that the author used to create her works are very different: from wood chips and cardboard to candy wrappers.

At the opening ceremony of the exhibition, the Program Director of the Russian Centre, Vitaly Mlechin, noted that the RCSC hosts many expositions. For example, documents and photographs dedicated to the famous diplomat Andrei Gromyko are on display, and very soon will be opened an exposition of posters from the Second World War. But the exhibition of Yana Knight is in some ways special, while the contemporary art is exhibited here. But its complexity is that it is not clear to everyone. Therefore, it is so great that the author herself represents the work, and she can answer all the questions.

You can see the paintings of Yana Knight at the Russian Center in Brussels until September 29.
