A SOLO EXHIBITION BY A FRENCH ARTIST OLGA BOLDYREFF
The artist’s solo exhibitions took place earlier in St. Petersburg at The Dostoevsky Museum in 2013, and at The Anna Akhmatova Museum in 2010, as well as in different museums and galleries in Europe. Her works are presented in the collections of Fine Arts Museum in Calais (France), Västerås Art Museum (Sweden), Museum of Modern Art of Belfort (France), Fine Arts Museum of Angers (France), Regional Contemporary Art Fund in Pas-de-Calais (France), Regional Contemporary Art Fund in Loire (France), National Foundation for Contemporary Art in Paris (France), and National Library of France.
Especially for Erarta Olga Boldyreff has created two new series of graphic works, “Don-Loire” and “Petersburg-Nantes”, two solid visual sequences of French and Russian landscapes. A series of engravings “Walking in the City” (2007) will show topographic maps of Nantes and Pad de Calais city quarters, where streets and places have Russian names.
The exhibition project “Bond” is a polyphony of voices, born in the connection of the real and the imaginary, the actual French experience of the artists and her reconstructed Russian memories.
