The work is a cypher for the duality of cultural perspectives and misappropriation, a product of my reflective practice on disparities of societal approaches to art. I started out looking at the symbolic space of the home – and used my childhood home in the Soviet Union as a starting point for the project as it embodied an interesting cultural dimension and also functioned as a metaphor for the mind and body – a constantly mobile force of consciousness, trapped in a physical shell. “Red House” and “Crystal House” represent issues of alienation and fragility in Russian society.
