The exhibition is based on the narrative of the well-known novel by Virginia Woolf, which became a standard read of the women’s movement in the 1970s. As a young woman, Virginia Woolf was subjected to the conditions of Victorian society, which provided only a very very narrow sphere of activity and development for women. Even today, her novel is particularly relevant, opening up a universal discussion about the need for a space for creation, for stillness and, of course, for art. In our group exhibition, we present the work of a variety of outstanding women artists who approach their work in relation to science, history and literature, shaping the course of art history.
“Nevertheless, I believe that this poetess, who never wrote a word and was buried at a crossroad, is still alive. (…) She lives in you, in me and in many other women who are not here today. Yes, she lives. For true women poets do not die.” – Virginia Woolf. A Room of One’s Own. 1929
