Project info

After getting acquainted with the activities and main goals of the residence and other participants, I will begin a gradual study of the enviroment. During my “expeditions” I`ll find important and indicative for this region symbols and images that will become a part of my work. Simultaneously, by making a subjective analysis of the environment, connecting the landscape, culture and society, it will be possible to create an eclectic series saturated with abstract and figurative elements that form one complete composition. I`ll plan to create from 6 to 10 graphic works and several objects that will be organically linked to the entire exposition. They will represent a slice, which, like, a layered palimpsest will allow to consider each component of identity. Staying in the local information flow will give a new sound to my work, while without losing touch with all the previous ones. And for society, they will remain, as a graphic diary of a person who has come into contact with their culture and captures the most striking aspects of it. This experience of mutual enrichment, without intervention, is one of the most important practices of our era of globalization, which is so characteristic only to absorb, not to interact.
