Just today, I received the news that Alla Girik from Kazakhstan and participating artist in the show passed away already in November 2006 due to a heart desease.
Her self-portrait is showing her as a dead person, and only today I understand the actual meaning of this visionary view, as she knew she would die when she was submitting her work.
The Memory of Alla Girik will be kept vivid through this show and its website.
God Bless you Alla.
