Yevgen Samborsky – Velvet Nothing
It happens one wants to explain a certain thought to people but fails to formulate it. Words are searched for, but they are like senseless sounds, like empty bubbles from comic strips, it is as if words are lacking. It happens so, does it not? It is here that the time of art arrives as a way of communication, art which can through its means replace the hours of empty conversations and explanations. It is not worthwhile to expatiate, it is time to work.
Evgeny Samborsky’s exhibition “Velvet Nothing” is just an example of how the human being attempts to sort out his feelings and the surrounding world, testing it in motion, without superfluous words, without asking or believing answers, but learning it through own experience. Articles presented at the exhibition are an attempt to fully show how much happens around us and how wide the range of choice is in modern world. “Velvet Nothing” is the matter which turns out new to us, and everyone can delve into it and sense its influence. Is it dangerous or not? The answer will be known only after we are soaked through, sponge-like, with new information. And this not abstract graphomania, for if one thinks hard, such a submersion is an inseparable part of any human being. Not the motion itself during submersion is important here, but the moment when it’s clear to you that the first step is already taken.
As a known saying goes, curiosity killed the cat… but maybe, it didn’t. And maybe, not the cat alone? Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
