The “Fantasy Land” exhibition will open on October 9 in the Library. You will see the spectacular works from the art project "The 13th Wonder of the World" by artist Alexander Vyshka.

Depending on the light – natural, ultraviolet light or total darkness – objects change externally, changing their message at the same time. Unusual exhibits will open the gates to "Atlantis", the kingdom of shadows and monsters, and send you on an exciting journey to the "Mysterious East".

Guests of the exhibition will have a unique opportunity to see the Manga by Katsushik Hokusai, one of the oldest Japanese comics. This invaluable original from the National Library collection will be demonstrated for the first time! The collection consists of 7 editions, published in the period from 1814 to 1875. The complete collection by the famous Japanese master consists of 15 small volumes, about 900 pages and more than 4,000 scenes: genre scenes, landscapes, plants, animal architectural ensembles, strange creatures and countries. Researchers call this book the "Encyclopedia of the Japanese People".

The 13th Wonder of the World. Graphics, glowing in the dark, oil painting, elements of light-dynamic space. Musical instruments entangled in web, figurines, mysterious masks and other mysterious art objects.

Atlantis. Fantasy about the underwater kingdom. The "Oni" underground demon, the "fugu" fish, the golden dragon, the glowing elephant from mahogany, the "kappa" water monster and the devil.

Mysterious East. The "busi" wax warriors, toys and dolls of the 19th and 20th centuries, household items, netsuke, fans, the picture titled "The Samurai's Dream" with the scent of cherry blossoms, a doll from the first Orthodox church in Japan in Hakodate.

The exhibition will be interesting not only for the anime lovers, but also for guests with a wide variety of tastes, because the exhibits are fantastic. In addition, this is a great chance to make an original photo for your Instagram account: you will have the opportunity to dress the traditional kimono.

The exhibition will run till April 7, 2019.
