Nadejda is a russian word, which means hope. This inspired me.
Head in the clouds
The history of the monument to Princess Olga is confusing, mysterious and controversial, like the life of the princess.

In a modern society, where there is so much diversity, we find ourselves reflecting what we see around us.

Make Olga cool again!
Approaching the work, we should see a reflection of our own.

We are not able to be completely objective towards the reality that surrounds us, we deform it involuntarily.

We often forget what is not in line with our beliefs, and more what we want to believe in or what is important to us.
The 20th century was a century of changes. And you can track the trace by focusing on a very specific object. Object that represents the paradigm shifts.
The museum atmosphere is striking by its static nature, which resembles sculptures or silent films.

Every day the sculpture becomes an involuntary observer of thousands of lives, a participant in creative processes and changes.
My work is a kind of formalism in its pure form. The sculptural form via video.
Documentary film and collages
Interestingly, rebellion is perceived as energy, which must be given a way out.
The work explores the constructivist period of Ivan Kavaleridze's 1920s work.
