Drawing on personal childhood memories and symbols of the feminine and the domestic, Ekaterina Costa reflects on the contemporary Russian identity. Her practice manifests primarily as works on paper (drawings, typographic compositions and photographs). These monochrome images, bleached of the saturation that colors our reality, come into view through the distorted haze of memory. Harnessing the familiar, static genres of still life and landscape, she focuses on the domestic space as a cultural spatio-temporal prism, through which identity is filtered and shaped.
