ANASTASIA  ARTEMEVA

antisocially-engaged art

Recreation

ongoing

Recreation is a series of projects and multimedia installations around the act of sewing, the spaces of confinement and ritual, and time. Through visual, performative and dialogical processes I  investigate assumed social roles, ideas of judgement, social and antisocial being, as well as personal and collective boundaries.

This body of work will explore common rituals like keeping holiday homes or tending to a grave. I am interested in the spaces where these rituals happen, and how it affects our identity and how the body needs to adjust to accommodate for these. As people, no matter where we are from, we are united by a ritual even if are not together.
