Entrance is free.Valeriia Burliuk’s series »A Tale of Wandering« is a poetic photographic narrative and exploration of personal experiences of the “Hero’s Journey” based on the plot of the Russian folk tale The Magic Swan Geese.The main message of the tale is that one must learn to love oneself and show kindness if one expects support and understanding from others along the way. And it is precisely this theme that is more relevant than ever for the author today.Amidst the natural landscapes of Iceland, Cyprus, Germany and Poland, Valeriia Burliuk delves into the intricacies of the “Hero’s Journey” to change. She reflects on what the status quo means, on the search for one’s own destiny, on loneliness and on confronting one’s own fears on the way to something new.Donnerstag / Thursday, 28.
