Sculpture: Fabric, Paper, Plastic, Black & White on Other, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Plastic, Paper.
My sculptures are hyperplastic, a story inspired by an old photo of Dior, and a living doll among not living dolls. Created in December 2020. There are over 11 sculptures in this concept. Each is individual. And with the help of a photoshoot with girls, I want to show the size and resemblance to a real person. A doll and a non-doll can stand side by side like girlfriends. A living person next to a doll can, on the contrary, pretend to be a doll. And also a doll can be confused with a living figure.
This is an art project of the sculptures’ big project is part of the “hyperplastic Motanka” project, a traditional doll from ancient times. Motanka is a traditional doll that protects both the house and the child with its positive energy. I like to study and delve into history. Inspired by this part of the history of my country, Ukraine, I got the idea to create a full-length motanka sculpture. Let it be even more powerful energetically than small and more noticeable. This project is also eco friendly. These dolls-sculptures are made from scrap materials that have become unnecessary at home, and these are different clothes, plastic, polyethene, cardboard, etc. This is an ecological project for which, to create it, I bought only adhesive tape in the store, I found everything else at home and in an art studio, which was recycled to cleanse our planet of pollution. This work carries a positive paired energy, motanka sculptures are lovers—love, peace and goodness. Love will save the world! Let everyone enjoy this wonderful feeling.
