engraved cartridge, acrylic nails with manicure
produced during the residency "Where the story was interrupted?"
The work focuses on the topic of the representation of war in mass culture. The torn cartridge case seems to be in the hand and is shown to the viewer as evidence of the crime. The nails, representing the hand and gestures of grasping and holding, are presented as a space for expressing one's own political position. They depict patriotic stories and memes popular on the Internet, which raises questions about the limits of the political and actual ways of its expression.
