Pictures and installations by dozens of artists from 19 countries are on display.
An exhibition of pictures and installations illustrating ‘Alice in Wonderland’ has opened in the Nabokov Museum in St. Petersburg. Works by dozens of artists from 19 countries are showcased. St. Petersburg has become the final destination in the 5-year tour of the exhibition.
Anna Bezkrovnaya, Channel Saint-Petersburg reporter, took part in the ‘Mad Tea Party’.
Anna Bezkrovnaya: ‘A tea party among books and collections of butterflies in the Nabokov Museum is as fancy and surrealistic as in Lewis Carroll’s book.’
80 artists present their phantasies about one of the most famous episodes of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in the Nabokov Museum.
Vladimir Nabokov was the author of one of the Russian translations of the book. He gave Carroll’s character a Russian name calling her Anya.
There is one morel link between Lewis Carroll and Russia – the only overseas trip that the British writer made was to Russia.
