Classically Trained: An Art Installation by visual artist Ksenia Poulber and classical pianist Ani Gogova

Glenview, IL On March 29th, Terra Sounds presents the works of Ksenia Poulber, a Chicago-based artist and photographer, and Ani Gogova, Bulgarian-born virtuoso classical pianist. The photography and music installation “ Classically Trained” is an abstract study of a female body in space, and the relationship to its surroundings. A music and art experience, this installation is a journey consisting of images of a ballet dancer and musical compositions by Medtner, Brahms, Rachmaninoff and Ginastera exposing a wide emotional range from fragile intimacy to feverishly sweeping passion, and the contrast between tension and flow within the black and white images that are projected alongside the pianist.

The morning was fresh. The crisp air filled the room. I opened my eyes awaken by the first birthday caller this morning. I'm still getting used to waking up in the city. But I open my eyes, and, sure enough it is my little loft in Chicago. Sure the South Loop is still under developed, and that means a lot when you live in the murder capital of USA, but it has it's definite the view:) the fact that you can rent a loft, and that so many great people are your neighbors. 

"Hello" my mother's voice sounded happily into the phone. "Expect a flower delivery." 

I try to shake off the dreams. I saw my parents, us as a family. I'm still a little girl then.
