Fairytales feed our imagination and are meant to hone our critical mind. A fascination with fairytales inspired Katerina Belkina to create her own interpretations of them. Her images reside somewhere between written and oral tradition. They lay out a narrative for a story without curbing imagination, allowing the viewer to enter the realm of Dreamwalkers. During a time of radical cultural oppositions dividing the human race, it is essential to find common ground and kinship. Belkina's works provide for it and that makes them very relevant. *1974 in Samara. She was brought up in a creative atmosphere by her mother, a visual artist.
