Chagall’s Got Talent

October 3rd, 2011

Kseniya Simonova, a contestant on Ukraine’s Got Talent, shows us that Chagall continues to inspire artists of all kinds. She is a performance artist who works in sand and this piece, titled You Are Always With Us, tells the story of a young couple separated by war. Simonova went on to win the competition and one million hryvna (around $110,000).

    I saw this piece a while ago and posted it on my website.  But could someone please do a summary of Simonova work here – I gathered that this was a piece about war (WWII?? in Ukraine) but I could not pick up the references/cues that the audience get (and cry about).  Many thanks.
