All the magical creatures of myths, legends, and fairy tales come alive at the stroke of midnight in Christmas stories. In Victor Gontarov’s Heavenly Boat (Небесний човен) 1998, the child in a dreamlike state, rocking in his mother’s soft embrace, envisions an animated magical universe. The boat personified by the Siren’s singing face, the dove a messenger of the Divine, the mills, houses and earthly creatures are left behind as the boat gently rocks and floats into a fairy tale dream world.
KUMF Gallery is calling for submissions in response to Hontarov’s Heavenly Boat in all media; creative reflections and interpretations, enchanting images of fairies, and creatures that we all would like so much to encounter at the magical time of Christmas.
