installation, sculpture, graphic series
2022 - ongoing
"Hospitality" is a multimedia project reflecting on long-term hospital experience in Russia, where I try to domesticate medical devices, transforming the typical image of a hospital. “Hospitality” is a continuation of the “Home sweet hospital” project, where I compare a hospital to a normal apartment. At “Hospitality” my focus is on medical equipment. In this new parallel universe, a drop-counter can meet a home carpet or a test tube rack can turn into a vase for flowers.
I try to rethink this experience in my art practices. The starting point of the project was a series of graphics "Hospitality on paper", in which I began to re-invent "medical heroes". Some of my sketches are turning into large canvases, some into installations, and some into sculptures.
