February 19, 16:00–18:00. NCCA in Ekaterinburg. Free admission
On February 19, I will share the first results of my work in the temporary studio at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts / NCCA Ekaterinburg. The viewers will be able to get acquainted with one of my current projects — “Assemblage”. In this series of photo performances, I explore the fragile boundaries of ecological niches, creating impossible combinations of natural materials on my own body. In 2021, “Assemblage” was awarded as a finalist of Nova Art 8 contest, the work on this project was supported by a grant.
In my studio in Ekaterinburg, I will show some fresh images and documentation of the process, materials that I use in shooting and the ambient sound for upcoming video. Moreover I will talk in details about the concept of “Assemblage” and the genealogy of this work, which had been started in 2015, but was changed since the first idea appeared.
