ALCHEMY OF DREAMS
Asya in Wonderland
"The Studio" series was created within the framework of a large collective project called "Portrait of the Old House" (curator O.Korsunova) in 2002 and "Village of Artists" in the areas of Kolomyagi and Shuvalovo-Ozerki. It represents a series of houses and studios of modern artists and sculptors in which they simultaneously work and live together with their families.
Sculptures and objects were removed from the interiors of studios and attics -- where they had frequently fallen down in heaps or are simply placed and forgotten there by the founders -- to create an atmosphere of a private world of mutual relations among these personages. To animate a tree and bronze, to paint bright their life which they secretly live in absence of the owners... I hope you enjoy this private world with me.
