The exhibition 'Almost There' displays a retrospective of the works of a contemporary Russian artist Daria Setevinets. The artist's main medium is the medium of painting. As a representative of a post-Soviet grown-ups generation, the artist manages not to lose the connection between what she has been living through, as a matter of great personal importance. The classical subjects are respected and perceived by the masses as a starting point. The medium the artist works in allows manipulating the basis, to celebrate the referents, to smooth the critique of the consumer society without being a fury slap in the face of the viewer. The celebration of the human body releases its potential through the methods of displaying and visual interpretation.
