- What hair color does the modern Cinderella have? - She's blonde. - How is she doing? And what will her carriage turn into after midnight? - Things are not good (laughs). There's no carriage. The carriage is in her head. - Maybe she's not Cinderella? - I don't think she's Cinderella. She's a Hollywood teenager. A star. - Perhaps her father, a truck driver, is coming to pick her up from the party? - ... - Do you feel like Cinderella? - Because I don't sleep and I work? - No, just in general. - No. 'So Sorry' is the first solo exhibition of Kazan-based artist Nuriia Nurgalieva. In her artistic practice, Nuriia explores how inner moods, emotions, and aggression determine the external shape of the human body. The main techniques in her arsenal are illustration and flat digital images. Nuria considers painting and its history as an endless flow of images and clichés that surround us. This approach is typical of the younger generation of artists, for whom the Internet environment with its overproduction of images is one of the sources of ideas for their work. Inspired by anime, advertising, popular culture, and noir detectives, she creates an installation - a private room without a front door, in which the seemingly private easily becomes public. As part of the exhibition 'So Sorry', Nuriia created a 'stranger's' room, a modern-day Cinderella, filled with her personal belongings and artwork mimicking the interior. The heroine invented by Nuria has left her room, turning her departure into a detective story about escapism, dreams, and youth. The works in the exhibition include materials and techniques already familiar to the artist, such as fabric prints, as well as new ones such as glass and hardboard. In her new works, Nuriia continues to consider the image as a multi-layered flat object, the properties of which can change depending on the materials used and the angle of view.
