Interiors

2012

The series is made of a selection of vernacular photographs I found on the Internet and digitally manipulated afterwards. The familiarity of the interiors with the flats I grew up or visited on post-Soviet territories drew my attention to those images. So do the poses women are photographed in, which borrowed from another culture: a Western mass media as an exemplification of female sexuality. This series was one of the first works where I explored visual collision or co-existence of post-Soviet and Western cultures with focus on the women’s representation.
