La Vitrine Contemporain de Monaco

Summoning up the courage to open the doors of a gallery is not always easy, and the concept of an exhibition corner dedicated to showcasing contemporary art is an original initiative that engages with passers-by. This winter the space in Palais de la Scala is hosting two Monegasque artists with Ukrainian roots, who start a dialogue on the theme of “Monaco – the Power of Flowers”. Having developed a series of still life works featuring minimalist roses, Zoia Skoropadenko invited fellow artist Eva Dmitrenko to join her. Dmitrenko, a graduate of Pavillon Bosio who created more than one hundred and fifty wind roses in the gardens of Monte-Carlo last year, decided this time to pay tribute to the iris, a flower with both a feminine and masculine side, which she remembers seeing on family heirlooms in her childhood home. The installation also includes other artists’ work relating to the botanical world.
