Artist statement

I’m mixing hight art and low art in my works. For me it is important to change the accents, shifting emphasis, overall values. I’m building a context based on a cross-disciplinary approach to reflect the modern world. I work in different media from video art to installations, sculptures, painting. An important part of my artistic practice is the direct quoting of the urban environment surrounding me. 

I use “pieces of streets” in my works: marble, granite, asphalt, natural pigments, glass, gypsum, concrete, clay.

I work with the problem of the interaction of body and space in a modern media environment. One of the biggest interests to my artistic research is the people as a media. Our contemporary culture through images provides us with models of the social: what it means to be a man, a woman, a successful,a loser, a strong or weak. I, as an artist, deliberately move away from the patterns imposed behaviors.

In my artistic studies, the human’s body always becomes more than a rhetorical figure. It concentrates accents that go beyond the fictitious representation of reality and the widespread body image as the carrier of the basic characteristics of perception (gender, sexual orientation, nationality).

I am interested in the corporeality of consciousness, the fundamental dependence of the structures of subjectivity on the bodily constitution, “not a single thought, not a single cultural achievement, not a single form of human activity could have taken place without a body as its source”. A critical examination of the human body becomes a condition for understanding the diverse forms of a person’s relationship to himself, to another, to the world.

The total impact of information and communication technologies on the daily life of a person leads to a change in the understanding and experience of a person with his own body. And all this is due to the fact that “all this belonged to us.” In this contexts I’m mixing archaic and contemporary.
