Yuliya Lanina’s “Bird & Bees”


Yuilya Lanina's "Dodo" video still reveals her invented original imagery of the hieros gamos -- intertwined bodies physically forming the sacred marriage of opposites where male and female blend into the heart -- a holy new transgender identity of whole human beingness.

In conjunction with the “Festival of Ideas for the New City,” a new collaborative project with C. Eule Dance Company, Yevgeniy Sharlat (composer) and Yuliya Lanina, “Gentleman from Cracow” will be performed May 7th at 7.30pm during the closing reception of Yuliya Lanina’s solo show “Birds and Bees” 7-9pm.

Yuliya Lanina has been an artist-in-residence at NY Studio Gallery since January 2011.  Employing grotesque imagery to simultaneously elicit feelings of uneasiness and empathy, Lanina paints and collages bizarre characters that come to life through mechanization, animation, and music.

The show runs April 7-May 7th.
Hours: Thurs – Sat, noon – 6 pm or by appointment
