Having already exhibited at SCOPE Basel and SCOPE New York in 2015, this time, Inga will be exhibiting her interpretations of the classic Flemish Baroque painting on the sands of Miami Beach.
Krymskaya will be exhibiting three of her Variations (#1, #5 and #11) from the ‘3045 Variations on The Feast of Venus’ project, as she explores the different possibilities conceivable on one theme, using various mediums to expand Rubens’ painting and give another conceptual interpretation every time.
The Variations project has also been opened to artists globally with the aim to encourage a wide variety of artists using all kind of mediums to collaborate and share their own interpretations – something that was common practice in early 17th century Antwerp, but no longer is today.
Speaking of her upcoming appearance at SCOPE Miami Beach 2015, Krymskaya said: “Returning to Miami SCOPE is an honour and a pleasure. It is amazing to see works ranging from street art to photography and sculpture – I can’t wait to gauge the reaction of my latest project from the public, and hopefully it will encourage people to understand my vision.”
Gallery G-77 was first established by owner and director Andrei Mikhilov in 2003 in St. Petersburg. It was one of the first galleries in Russia to represent contemporary international artists with a particular focus on Japan, where the gallery’s owner spent more than 10 years. In 2011 Gallery G-77 moved to Japan.
SCOPE Miami Beach’s pavilion, located on Ocean Drive, will present 125 international exhibitors and will welcome 45,000 visitors over the course of 6 days. With cumulative sales well over one billion dollars and attendance of 1.2 million visitors, SCOPE Art Show is the largest and most global emerging art fair in the world.
