Starting price 350 €
Gathering at Kogo auction on June 5th

Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova has donated two paintings for the auction. “Look Me in the Eye” (2017) was part of her solo show “Demonstration” (2017) at Jop in Tartu. The painting represents, on the one hand, emotions that we would like to hide and struggle with internally, on the other hand, emotions that we gladly show to the world. “What to Maintain” (2020) is a painting from her last solo show “Don’t Avoid What is Easy – Diplomacy Meets Art” (2020) which she was also preparing at Kogo gallery in summer 2020. The exhibition was a result of two years of research involving over 100 participants from 24 European countries voicing opinions about our public surroundings.

About the artist

Anastasia has faith in social engagement through aesthetics and the infinite possibilities of art. With a background in fine arts, design and social activism, she wants her work to question the perceptions formed around an individual’s worth and potential. She wants to paint, build, design and bring to life the questions that will allow the viewer to re-evaluate damaging beliefs about themselves and at least imagine a more positive alternative. Originally from Moscow, Anastasia has lived and worked in multiple European countries. She holds a BA in Fine Arts and has received training in Belgium, the Netherlands, Russia and Estonia, where she is currently based. Her works are in private collections in Belgium, Estonia, France, the UK and Russia.
