Embroideries: Sex & Empire

This series of embroideries attempts to analyze the visual and subconscious sequences that belong to the past, but still continue haunting modern Russia. As new military conflicts arise, the question of their roots becomes more and more important.
The fastest rockets, the most destructive bombs, the most undetectable airplanes in regular annual parades, TV programs and propaganda. It has been over two decades that produced these images of power and domination ceased to exist. These images manifested militarism as an subconscious desire, which has often replaced the actual desire in the desexualized Soviet Union.
The works imitate Soviet banners, connecting the visual and assumable, the legacy and modern day, as well referring to timeless images of fertility that go throughout the history of mankind.
