Erart Museum together with the international ballet festival Dance Open presents an exhibition of the shocking Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf.
There is a beautiful art, and there is a great art. The beautiful pleases the eye, and the great helps the person to reconcile with the inescapable pain and bitterness of being. The work of Erwin Olaf is a silent cry that suffering is the path of knowledge, its natural stage, as a result of which, through overcoming, through blood and sweat, revelation comes, not beauty but truth is born.
The commonwealth of the Dutch photographer Olaf and the leading ballet companies of the Netherlands is a happy union that gave the world a miracle commensurate with the art of old Dutch masters, a new direction - stage superrealism, through metamorphosis and hypocrisy capable of telling the truth about human nature at the level of biblical generalizations and with Shakespearean passion.
At the exhibition in the Erart Museum, the audience will see the works of Erwin Olaf, created by him in the period from 1985 to 2016.
