I was approached to create visuals for an issue of Slovak culture magazine KAPITAL.
The August 2020 issue was dedicated to Alexandra Kollontai - a female Russian revolutionary, politician and diplomat. Kollontai didn't fit the mould of a Russian female activist, whether it was her personal life, her politics or even the way she dressed. I chose to portray her legacy through photographic abstraction, using my physical subjectivity as a means of expression. These works balance between the abstract and
the symbolic.They are both metaphorical and personal.
Sometimes the female form performs a cliché of femininity, other times it claims the space it is put in- or majestically merges with that space- in an allegory of strenght, mutating into allusive, abstract landscape or sculpture.
