Memory and connection to the current moment are essential. ‘My subjects are dictated by the Russian history... guerrillas, victims of Soviet repressions… Permanent revolt, and permanent penalty… Protest and violence… But I am an artist, not a writer, a historian or a publicist. I use my own means … with the help of colour, composition, and gesture… I believe that magic exists the magic of art.’ - Tatyana Nazarenko
