Renowned Duo, the writer Viktor Jerofejew and the artist Genia Chef, present a subversive exhibition on the theme of the Body: “TELO”

Berlin, HAZE GALLERY – The upcoming exhibition on the theme of “TELO” is set to be a grand celebration of the human form. This revolutionary exhibition, hosted at the renowned HAZE GALLERY promises to present a unique and immersive experience that blends the written word with visual arts, showcasing the artistic prowess of two great minds – Viktor Jerofejew, a bestselling author, and Genia Chef, an acclaimed painter.
The exhibition is inspired by the recently published book, „The Body,“ (Viktor Jerofejew) which delves deep into the human existence and explores the nuances of the human experience. The writer and the artist through their respective mediums, bring to life the beauty, complexity, and fragility of the human form in a way that is both thought-provoking and visually stunning.
“It seems to me that Genia and I are at the point now where we, as free and excited people about this subject, can say that we are bringing this topic up” said Viktor Jerofejew, “we may be bringing this up for the first time since the Greeks.”
Genia Chef, the celebrated painter, added: “We want to express something meaningful in human life, history or aesthetics, and TELO already dictates by itself what the artist will depict. It says, „I am the subject of your image, and then do what you want.“
The exhibition, scheduled to open on May 26th, will feature over 30 exquisite paintings and quotes from the book, including live readings. Both of the artists will be present.

The exhibition promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience that engages all of the senses and inspires visitors to think without established restrictions about the human form. With a unique combination of prose and visual arts, Viktor Jerofejew and Genia Chef challenge traditional notions of the human form and invite visitors to see it in a whole new light.
