The exhibition "Re_action" takes care of the environment
The CAN BONI art gallery presents the original works of the Ukrainian artist Katrin Starostenko, focused on sustainability.
On Friday, 8 November at 19.00 in the art gallery "CAN BONI" (c/ Forn de la Gloria, 8 / c/ de Can Boneo, 2A) there will be the personal exhibition of the Ukrainian artist Katrin Starostenko with the name of project "Re_action".
Katrin Starostenko was born in Ukraine. Since her childhood she has travelled, observing social injustices and growing ecological problems. In this way she matured as the person and artist and was defining the specific direction in her creative work.
Now the artist resides in Mallorca, where she creates inspired by beauty and assumes as her own the sensitivity, needs and problems that the island lives today. Using sustainable tools and resources in her projects and trying to minimize the ecological footprint of her creation. From the curious gaze of a little girl, she creates unlimited games and experiments from biodegradable and recycled materials, trying to reduce her ecological footprint.
The works of the artist are in private collections in Russia, Ukraine, Holland, Italy, Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Georgia, Turkey, India and Nepal.
"I am increasingly concerned about growing global problems. And the least I can do as an artist is to Recycle, Reuse and Replace in my creative process," says Katrin Starostenko. "I am very happy and thanked CAN BONI for the support and the opportunity to exhibit here! It is my first personal exhibition in Spain. And Mallorca, which I love for its rhythms, its bright colours and the cultural mix, I try to take care of it as a person who lives here and as a local artist", - says the artist.
"RE_action" is a project that unites works carried out over the years as an artistic response to REality. Its base and the inspiration are a concept of REsiliencia: phenomenon of nature and living beings that implies RECOVERING one's own resources after having suffered a traumatic circumstance, in order to RETURN to the state of equilibrium. RE_action is the result of the REflection, on the one hand, of the social and ecological problems that weigh more and more every day and, on the other hand, of the biological processes such as REsilience and REgeneration that bring light and hope.
Many times, society determines the materials used by the artist, as objects of daily life and even garbage. In the creative fire they are transformed into the objects "DE REACTION POETIQUE" by Le Corbusier, thus reincarnated into a great work of art.
Within the exhibition there are various activities that weave the relationship between ecology and art, while creating a platform from which participants are invited to reflect and react positively and actively to the environmental crisis.
Exhibition of works "Re_action" in art gallery "CAN BONI" will be held from November 8 (opening - 19.00) until November 21, 2019.
Admission free of charge.
