C-Print 60X60 cm|2005|
Six sets of photographies and texts depict memory fragments, creating the full image of “sleepy Sunday”. The self-absorbed and withdrawn girl is in primary focus, her world puts a viewer in the deprived, almost surreal atmosphere. Written by the artist accompanying text poetically describes childhood memory fragments, thereby it creates a further delusive landscape of the artwork.
The reconstruction of childhood impressions was achieved through photography. It manifests the presence of these impressions in the present, despite actual completion in the past. These impressions take a visual form that moment when mental inner images are captured by outer medium and are identified with it.
“A forgotten clay figurine on a heated windowsill. A smell of Grandma’s old dress. A hidden in the bag mothball. Mom’s red lipstick leaves glycerine stains in the most impossible places. My hands are constantly scratched. Masha, you have played again with a neighbour’s cat! There would be lunch soon. There is a soup pot in the kitchen, together with a clock it plays a melody of the sleepy Sunday. Time turns into melting ice-cream. This sweet and sticky ice-cream covers the flowery meadow of the plate”.
