Little Adults

'Little Adults' is a series of portrait which depict the first generation of children born into wealth in Russia. An exploration of the projection of power, desire and wealth  on offsprings as an incarnation of clichés of the parents lived. It is about the allegories of the world of the unapproachable wealth.

The Man With The Midas Touch - A Botanical Index of Narcissus

“Now I shall speak of the sadness of flowers so as to feel more of the order of whatever existed.”

The Man With The Midas Touch – A Botanical Index of Narcissus depicts 30 types of gold-medal winning Narcissus flowers from the Chelsea Flower Show in 2016. The series is composed of scans of each show-type flower applying a technique in which liquids are used when placing the flower on a digital scanner. Combining the qualities of high-definition scanning and liquids is a hint to a return to early methods of photography. The flower of Narcissus is being de-mystified in its original mythological sense. 

What happens if the scanner doesn't look for threads?

What if it tries to translate the poetic existence of nature to engage with the microscopic traces of history within its organic flesh, soil, water and air laced with power?
