exhibition of nude portraits "Eos" by artists Alina Solodina and Olga Gnezdilova.

The goddess of the morning dawn in ancient Greek mythology was called Eos. Her name is in tune with the god of love Eros. Eos had a fervent heart and she was not afraid to show her feelings, and the poets sang her beauty. Eos is a symbol of a transitional state, the border between night and day.

The attitude to corporeality in Russia is now also undergoing another transitional state. After the Paleolithic Venuses, antique sculptures, Renaissance paintings and thousands of works by artists depicting the naked body in different eras, created 35 thousand years ago, nudity in art again causes alienation in society.
