“Maybe a Miracle!” was a series of performances by the artist Alevtyna Kakhidze who was painting on a glass canvas in the public spaces of Crimean cities and villages. By employing lines, letters and signs, the artist recreated two processes – contemplation and telling her own story. Each painting session was named after the city or village where it was created: “Sevastopol!”, “Vilino!”, “Krymske!”, “Prysyvashne!”, “Tsylinne!”. The artist was painting on glass during the May 9 military parade in Sevastopol, at the market, on the rural street, in front of the school and in the house of culture.Детальніше
