Yuka Kuznetsova is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artist:
Yuka Kuznetsova is a traveler, aspired psychologist, book worm, explorer and part time musician & photographer from St. Petersburg living in Kiev.
about the artwork:
“I really love this special state when you just stand still, looking either inside yourself – contemplating, half-meditating – or outside, watching something peculiar, or so beautiful you wonder if your heart is going to explode.
I like symbols and how they make you feel when you come across them in real world. Like sometimes you just stumble upon something so strange/extraordinary, that you can’t stop staring at it.
Another thing that fascinates me is the combination of ‘figure’ and ‘background’, how something in the center of composition interacts with something in the background.
I am fascinated by how when you take pictures you don’t only capture what’s outside of you, you actually reflect what’s inside of you as well.”
