until 05.02. | #3283ARTatBerlin | HazeGallery shows from 14th January 2022 the exhibition Nonverbal Stories by the artist Lentov. Lentov is the pseudonym of the artist Elena Fuks. The exhibition is curated by Iren Russo.
In program structuralism’s essay by Roland Barthes, The Death of the Author, a philosopher research phenomenon transforms author’s ideas in the reader’s minds into something different. How does it happen? How does our personal experience influences our text’s interpretation and understanding? Why is author’s idea isn’t the same thing as the reader’s interpretation? According to Barthes when the reader sees the text, and starts reading it, interpreting it, the author is dying, because his idea is transforming and never will be the same.
In visual arts, as in texts, the same process is happening. We see an artwork, and our imagination, life experiences, education help us to understand visual forms. It’s a unique, unrepeatable understanding for everyone.
The solo show of the artist Lentov Non-verbal Stories is about an essential trait of art — an ability to make a viewer feel and reflect. It is the first time Lentov presents abstract artworks and introduces the audience to the new phase of her artistic career.
“The abstract era of my oeuvre started two years ago. I wanted to share something personal, not in any verbal ways, to allow you to read my diary that was written without using any words”.
Abstract art is more delicate in the case of “storytelling.” This art style is not so straight, but it conveys mood and emotions much more accurately and gives a broader field for imagination and reflection. Each artwork is a personal story of the artist and each viewer, and all these stories are entirely different.
Artworks at the exhibition are made in different techniques and on various materials. The main artwork of the exhibition is a 3,9 x 2,6 m diptych that was never shown before.
Lentov is the pseudonym of an artist, illustrator, painter, designer, and graphic designer, Elena Fuks.
Elena was born in 1993 in Moscow. She was educated in British Higher School of Arts & Design, Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona.
She started her artistic career in 2009. Today the painter lives and works in Barcelona.
For now, Elena has had six personal exhibitions and participated in sixteen group exhibitions, including the exhibitions in London, Barcelona, Moscow, Lisbon, Cologne, Berlin, and Venice.
