Most of the works of art are made of natural material and are not disassembled after the festival is over. That’s why here you can find expositions from past festivals.

    • Agreed. It’s more retrospective, kinda like trying to reconstruct the historical and cultural identity. Very reflecting into the past. Russia as a nation is trying to restore the very roots of its culture, the cultural references beyond the disturbing times of its history that begin with Peter I. After that Russia was so much transformed that no one can recall the proto-cultural background of the nation.
      Primitivism is a good choice to do that.

  1. Life has one meaning or purpose. That is to understand what happiness is and how to achieve it. To express ourselves through art is a very good step. I believe we see the spirit of the artist in their work.
