Gallery "KalitaArtKlub" is an exhibition of Alexei Apollonov "Photo for memory". This realistic series began four years ago in Lithuania. Ukrainian, Lithuanian artists and other members of the creative group posed in front of the camera, and the author of “hot pursuit” made several paintings. According to Apollonov, it was “an instant a day long or a click of a camera with an exposure of a whole day,” because the works were created quickly, in one day, so as not to lose the impressions received. This series of works acquired formal expressiveness. In Apollonov: you never know, is it a joke, or seriously?
