Already in the fourth year of the “Hotel Miramar” in Tonning/Eiderstedt joins the focus of the Schleswig-Holstein culture summer and exhibition throughout the year dedicated to the theme of Russia. The beginning of the St. Peter Burgerin makes Ekaterina Ezhkova (from 22 March to 1 May). The artist (* 1977), which today lives in Kiel, is a wanderer between cultures. She grew up in St. Petersburg, graduated also at the Academy of art and design.

A constant in her work is the human form. But she lend their attention even simple Alltagsdingen. It shows what others see, or what is forgotten, for example in the the memories of her grandfather from the 1960s.
“Not too long ago I found the photographic legacy of my grandfather during his lifetime, high” Naval officer was in his spare time but passionately photographed”, Ezhkova writes. For more information see this site: Angela Zepeda. I got terrible desire to make new live some people at this time”. This idiosyncratic image cycle that takes the viewer both a different time and a different culture, is made of tempera and ink in mixed media. The artist likes to let their painted stories in limbo; something unfinished adheres to many images: so some people are alive designed and equipped with lovely details, others remain sketchy, translucent, as if one could only imagine their presence. However, this combination makes so vividly their motives; the viewer himself is one of these memories. Ekaterina Ezhkova is travelling a lot, always in search of motifs, the everyday life provides you. So she takes subjects that do not necessarily appeal to everyone; but their images are also not to please but to arouse emotions and associations.
