White Blonde (*signed print*)

@ Borissova, Julia



Presentation by the artist:

"« Antarctica is a special place with particular stories and memories, the polar explorers called it white blonde.

In this work I used found photographs from the Antarctic. I decided to freeze them to get such images, which could express a sense of awareness of time, death and the inevitable decay through this transformation. I wanted to show the fear of oblivion, termination of activity, and entropy through a collision with a hard, cold ice surface. 

It wasn't enough for me to use only archival photographs of unknown polar explorers so I made some self-portraits. I had to put myself, literally, into the ice to emphasize my feelings.  »
