Welcoming the visitors, Aida Mahmudova gave information about the exhibition’s concept: “I have worked a great deal of time on this exhibition and spent much of my energy to accomplish it. “Elysium “is the subject and concept of the exhibition. In ancient Greece, Elysium was a place where absolutely happy people lived. To be more precise, a place of eternal happiness. But there is nothing eternal, and will not be. Because noting metaphorical has a form. Therefore, having a beginning and comprehending is beautiful. I wish all of you to have a nice evening”.
