Maria Primachenko. Phantasmagoria

Exhibition December 20, 2018 − March 24, 2019
The National Museum of Ukrainian Folk Decorative Art is hosting an exhibition “Maria Primachenko. Phantasmagoria"Dedicated to the 110th anniversary of the birth of the folk artist. The exhibition includes more than 100 works of the master. Mythological creatures from the legends of the region, in which the artist grew, found their original reflection on paper. Images of her compositions are transferred to the world of popular imagination, ancient beliefs, reinterpreted and reborn by the indefatigable creative imagination of the master. However, they are related to the traditional folk arts of Ukraine and, above all, its native Polesie.

For the first time presented two albums with drawings created by the artist in the 1940s. Exposure complements the slide show of these drawings.

Next to the exhibits are inscriptions from the originals of works made by Maria Primachenko. Unique author's signatures - proverbs, sayings, parables, poetic words that appear in the 1970s, reveal deep philosophical generalizations and the semantic meaning of the work.

Maria Primachenko in her works continued the traditions of Ukrainian folk art and created a new, time consonant art.
