Who is my real mother

Project author:

Daria Kuznetsova

START's artist

Exhibition by artist Dasha Kuznetsova opened at the site of young art START, CCA Winzavod at October 10. Dasha Kuznetsova combines her interest in psychiatry and neuroscience with practical study of mythological thinking.

Her main tool is automatic drawing which allows to convey folklore, memory mechanics, sleep and borderline states. Kuznetsova renders ruins, abandoned buildings and hidden elements in the urban landscape as symbols of the unconscious mind. 

Personifications of mythical and natural forces are the main characters in this archaic environment. Who is my real mother deploys two-dimensional medium of drawing into the field of sculpture. By the use of cultic and religious leitmotifs the artist transforms exhibition space into a ritual site where wood and fire become central, mutually balanced elements
