"Exit to" by Tatyana Kolbatova became a part of collective exhibition "The Feeling of Home" in St. Petersburg, which is open at "Avent Inn" hotel since 02.09.2017 till 02.01.2018 every day from noon to 8 p.m.
The exposition features works of ten Russian photographers. Each author focuses on his own feeling of home, interprets and develops the theme in his
own manner. Every photographer has embedded his visual statement within an unusual space -
a cosy hotel on the Nevsky Avenue, not so long ago converted from several communal
apartments. The location for the exhibition has not been chosen randomly, it pursues a certain
purpose: the atmosphere of that small hotel refers directly to the declared theme - The Feeling
Of Home. Both the multilevel space and the labyrinth of corridors and staircases allow each
author not only to make an independent statement but also to personally meet the viewer
within the framework of that collective project.
Tatyana Kolbatova in her work «Exit to» turns to photography and installation to show a fantastic world of the Petrogradsky district where she lives. She treats this space as a tesseract, a four-dimensional analogue of the cube (hypercube). For Tatyana Petrogradka's courtyards form an endless labyrinth in motion. It has an entrance, but doesn't have a way out into the three-dimensional space that is accessible to us. Local well yards become a metaphor of space expanding and living by its own physical laws.
