Luca Curci – Your work has just been exhibited during LIQUID ROOMS – THE LABYRINTH exhibition in Venice: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Elena Sigmund – Venice is like a dream. Since I remember, I have been dreaming of displaying my work to the audience in this famous city. With International Art Expo my dreams came true.  It has been a particular pleasure to present my work of art in the beautiful antique Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

E. S. – The work, which I presented in Venice is part of the series of paintings “Sun rises over myths,” based on the research of symbolism and its importance. Every cultural layer of each nation leaves its symbols, which over time produce layers of symbols. I’ve researched the symbolism of my Russian nation. The history of each nation is like a labyrinth in which an individual walks. Symbols, left to us by ancestors, are like signs that lead a pedestrian on the path through the labyrinth. At the same time, I wonder what the symbols and ornaments of the present time will be. A new sun of a new era, the so-called globalism, is developing

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

E. S. – In addition to my family, I passionately love two things in life – painting and designing stained glass windows. I am preparing a new project in which I would like to explore the communicative potential of art in society, its relative freedom, reflection and imagining of (the) other. In the art of stained glass windows, most of my products are made upon request.

L. C. – What is art for you?

E. S. – For me, art represents the school of intuition, self-realization and satisfaction.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

E. S. – International Art Expo has proven to be a professional team that knows what it is doing and this gives opportunities to artists to present their work in different parts of the world. It’s great to work with them.

E. S. – Yes, I absolutely think so.

Modernity as the age of technical progress is characterised mainly by movement and velocity, which have also found multiple manifestations in art.
