‘THE HATCHING OF HUMANITY’ BY AEC INTERESNI KAZKI
Heerlen Murals initiative in The Netherlands recently invited AEC Interesni Kazki to do an intervention in the Vrieheide neighborhood as part of their “Je gaat het pas zien als je het doorhebt” (There is more than meets the eye) project. Curated by Raenys Martis, the idea behind this program is to shed new light on a city that has been experiencing difficulties since the local industries started closing and many people moved out of the area.
Aleksei Bordusov (AEC) painted surrealist image titled “The Hatching of Humanity.” The colorful image tells the story of mankind blindly chasing their dreams lead by their supernatural guides. Using a fragile eggshell as a metaphor for Earth, the artist points out the need to save and take care of our of our Earth instead of destroying it. The third eye that is guiding the main character symbolizes the mystics, scientists, artists, saints and others who have abilities to drive human race into unknown and unexplored. Known for works that carry universal messages hidden behind symbols and metaphors, the artist battled extreme weather conditions like rain, freezing and strong winds for 9 days in order to complete this meaningful and intricate mural.
