Wan Laryukov is the newest artist to show her works at Galeria Artemis. Below we have reproduced a small interview where Wan talks about her RL and Sl work.
Artemis: Do you work as an artista in RL?
Wan: Yes, I have made around 40 shows in RL, mentioned in several books.
Artemis: What kind of media do you use in RL?
Wan: Oil painting, sculptures and I also write poems and poetic prose.
Artemis: Do you have a background as artist?
Wan: I studied Fine Arts.
Artemis: The installation you present at Artemis mixes several media, Have you done this kind of work in RL too?
Wan: Only music and painting, sometimes poetry.
Artemis: Do you think that SL makes easier this mixing of media?
Wan: Yes, there is no doubt about it and we reach a wider public.
Artemis: When did you start to develop a work as artist in RL and SL?
Wan: In RL I started at a very early age to draw and then write. In SL I have been working with art since 2007. More recently, I have been creating installations.
Artemis: Did you use another media at your earlier works?
Wan: Sculpture. Some of them are in Artemis.
Artemis: The painting you present at Artemis is a RL work of yours?
Wan: Yes, I won a prize with it by the Radio Marconi. The jury was composed by teachers at the Fine Arts School. The painting was sold afterwards.
Artemis: Why have you choosen that poem in particular?
Wan: In fact, I have chosen it among the many poems I have, although sometimes I write them on the spot and later the idea for the installation comes up. I rely heavily on my subconscious.
Artemis: Would you like to say something about your work at Artemis?
Wan: I would like to thank Duna for giving me this opportunity of doing something and showing who I am.
