Artworks created especially for the project were exhibited in an unusual space and allowed visitors to glimpse the vast expanses of the universe through artists' eyes.
Mariana Guber-Gogova, founder of the Gogova Foundation: «One of Gogova Foundation objectives is to develop an interaction between the artists and Russian regions, and this project proves that young Russian art is ready to stretch itself beyond the major cities. The venue for the project itself is unique, it gives a powerful creative impulse to the invited artists, who work in a variety of techniques and a variety of mediums».
