On December 8, the Auction House "Korners" will host the project "On Property Rights or How to Claim a Jewelry, a Chair, a Yorkshire Terrier and Put It All in One File", which presents legal documents and works of art together in a single space. The basis for the exhibition was an online performance by Alevtina Kakhidze and Law Net, which lasted about two months under the tag #ПроМайновіПрава. Curator — Anna Morozova.

The gallery of the Auction House "Korners" will present nine legal cases, some of which are quite unique, such as the remaking of Maria Prymachenko's works by Alevtina Kakhidze, and the display of the created artwork commissioned by Vogue.
For the first time, everyone will be able to understand the legal regulations for the handover and takeover of works of art, which is a new type of social relations. Donation, purchase, or license documents at the level of artistic creations.
As part of the project, rights and responsibilities agreements between artists and collectors highlight the fragility of the art and expose the nuances that a lawyer anticipates so that artists, collectors, and potential owners do not encounter.
The exhibition will also have a practical element — visitors will be able to get acquainted with the contract templates and descriptions of unique legal cases developed by the law firm Law Net. All legal cases will be "illustrated" by artist Alevtina Kakhidze, who has been working in the art field for over 20 years.
