Some of them lived a normal life, had a job, a family and children, but as a result of trauma, genetic disorder, infection, they found themselves in the confined environment of their illness. Some couldn't even finish a special school, while others can't read or write... But look at these cheerful colours and pure forms!
The exhibition was supplemented and diversified by the creative works of children with hearing impairments studying at the inclusive art school «Выше крыши»/”Above the Roof”. These little artists see the world in a special way and have a high visual intelligence.
I would like to note the general preference of both these kinds of artists for bright colours, contrasting textures and shapes, often invented or transferred from everyday life to the special world of art.
We often forget that very talented and strong people live beside us, people, who, despite their serious, incurable illness, strive to create in order to have a meaning in life, to be needed and to be of interest to other people. This exhibition is proof that people with mental and physical disabilities are very talented and sociable, that they are ready to share their perception of the world with all of us.
The curator of the project is Marina Trofimova, Leading Researcher of the Department of Scientific and Educational Work
The exhibition will run until May 29, 2023
