Personal effects

The series of watercolour works on paper depicts a number of anthropomorphic objects that are instead obscure and seem to deliberately avoid naming. The objects are placed in the exteriors of an old Soviet recreation centre, the environment of which is almost identical to a prison, school or any other Soviet space intended for public use.

"...I would prefer to avoid a single interpretation of certain figures in the series - individual objects can act as something similar to the corporeal, as the corporeal (the same as human, if we are talking about manifestations) that has taken on a certain form, or as a metaphor for the human through their free form as opposed to the strict certainty of the environment. In this regard, it is extremely important for me to be careful to distinguish between similarity and sameness, where the former implies otherness and the latter serves the norm."
