I'm posing with the hardware instruments to evoke feelings of power and control, as well as destruction. I had an urge to incorporate household items that aren’t according to common standards female appropriate.
Posing with "manly" items symbolizes a struggle of how the home and society build following male standards. This destruction that metal hardware power tool alike the male standards brings into society is beyond description.
Characters are depicted multiplied to express controversy.
DEMOLITION OF EFFORTS: LADDER
An alternative perspective projected on the existence. A gaze on the reality from the point of view of an outsider uncanny organism. The organism has its own set of opinions, its own truth. A perception of reality may vary from organism to organism, from species to species. Delusions and misunderstandings of another kind of species with their own verity, lead to the alienation of organisms from one another. Polar opposite perceptions can not be conjoint without ruining their world vision.
Unnatural skin color. The color of contagion turns a person into something peculiar, like a nymph or fairy. Fairies in fairytales portrait as magical gracious creatures, but they aren’t actually kind. Flowers are associated with tenderness and pureness. The person is gloomy and wearing a harsh leather costume as a sign of disagreement with a universal obsession with happiness and wellness. The aggression against flowers and ordinary behavior expected from girls.
Self-isolation gave a world an opportunity to experience previously impossible emotions. A universal loneliness, injustice, negation and cornering. Never before have so many people experience loneliness at the same time. Government kindly insisted on staying in a comfortable home-prison. To be a prisoner voluntarily. Since locking yourself with yourself in a room, come a philosophical part of the journey — thinking about yourself and your place in life. Endless reflecting, finding a new person inside. After having only yourself and a computer as a conversation partners, the world around slowly starting to feel differently, flat and virtual. Is this chair real? What will happen if I look out of a window? What will I see? A real world or simulation? Life before all of that happened seem so far away from what is happening now. Abnormality becoming new normality, rules being rewritten, online world becoming a whole with an offline. Suddenly nothing around matters, loses it's meaning. Everything is digitalized even human emotions. The world around is not going to see a human-human interaction, the computer is always unconsciously present.

The «Clubs» were a symbol of money, power and glory. This suit also has a strong religious meaning, because of its reference to the crucifixion of Jesus. Erotic context is a part of the aesthetics of cards, too. Exaggerated parts of female body were portrayed in unpoetical way only to create an lustful image. The “Clubs” suit in our case is uniting all these three aspects, putting them into an ironic context.

Abstract incident, mixtured ugly modification of the abnormality.
Red destroys everything. It crushes the real, natural colors and force them to become vibrant.
