“Exploring the boundaries between the invisible image and form, text and image, dark areas of memory and consciousness, I create paradoxical personal spaces where I emphasize the areas of social and psychological crash and transformation. I may say I’m interested in the border between the medial and presence, where the meaning is not the same as the signified.
The things that I highlight in the temporal flow of present cannot be displayed by simple visual aids. I’m most interested in poetics of random connections and paradoxical spaces.
Rethinking aspects of interaction between the environment and the time, we see the physical space as the tip of the iceberg, woven of real and fictional dimensions. Mysterious and elusive landscape of the unconscious is only a conditional map, exploring which is a dangerous adventure”. (Alexander Morozov)
