Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Kristina Korobeynikova –
Art for me is first of all a way to tell people about my thoughts and feelings, it is an opportunity to make the world more beautiful. This is the language with which I try to reach human hearts, a kind of bridge that connects many people.

LC – What are you currently working on?
KK –
I am currently working on the project “Eternal Femininity”. In this project, I explore the issues of eternal femininity. This is the femininity that artists and poets have been praising since time immemorial, these are images of a gentle, beautiful and chaste woman, pure and faithful, a sorceress capable of giving a new life. But at the heart of everything is harmony, the harmony of the feminine and masculine principles. After all, it’s easy to be feminine when a strong and courageous man is standing next to you. When harmony is disturbed, life itself stops

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
KK –
I have been working on one topic for more than a year. There are three canvases left and the project will be completed. But of course, there are plans for new projects, that is, new topics.
 
LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
KK –
It’s not easy, because there is no stability, but there is freedom, and this is very important, especially today. Probably none of the artists is as free today as the artist. And it’s great!))
 
LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art? KK – Yes, of course. I am very happy when work is sold, not only because I earn money, but because it’s just very nice for me to understand that someone really likes my work. It’s really very nice.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the entire exhibition?
KK –
I exhibit the work “Harmony “. This is the harmony of the feminine and masculine, the harmony of Yin and Yang, this is the love of a man and a woman. Naked, they float underwater, out of time and space. So it was and so it will be. In harmony between a man and a woman, the world continues its development and a new one is born. The theme of the exhibition analyzes the hidden parts of the personality, the mysterious universe of our consciousness and the human body. Yes, over time, a person changes under the influence of society and the environment, but of course, there are things living deep in the unconscious that are not subject to change. And I show them exactly.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the exhibition or as a part of preexisting works?
KK –
My work is part of my project, it was not created specifically for the exhibition.
 
LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
KK –
Yes, of course. Any exhibition is a new opportunity for an artist to show his creativity and find his connoisseurs.

LC – Did you enjoy cooperating with us? What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
KK –
Yes, absolutely. It’s a pity that I didn’t manage to fly to the exhibition. But I want to appreciate the quick communication of employees who respond by email, their responsiveness and responsibility. Thank you It’s LIQUID for the opportunity!
