In 2014, CYBERFEST «The Other Home (s)» explores the commonalities and differentiations among physical, emotional and cultural manifestations attached to the concept of «home».
Following the tradition of legendary apartment shows of Soviet time — this exposition explores correlations between public and private, inner and outward, practical and idle, trivial and odd.
This group exhibition presents a survey of mid-career St Petersburg based artists including:
Elena Gubanova and Ivan Govorkov
Sergey Komarov, Leta & Vladislav Dobrovolsky

Marina Koldobskaya, CYBERFEST curator: «… Between poles of success there are tens of thousands square miles of bedroom communities. Something needs to be done about that.»
