To many of us Degas’s ballerinas are not anchored in the XIX century, the time where they were drawn and painted. Unquestionably, they are timeless symbols of method and harmony. On them, on the reproduction of a painting from the collection of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, Anastasia Potemkina intervenes with her pencils amplifying the physical boundaries of the rehearsal room. She makes it travel through time and brings it to the recent present, yet her new stories printed on the silk prints keep living in a universal time.
