Some wonderful work from Anna Shteynshleyger who I believe was recently awarded a precious Guggenheim fellowship thingy. Her Siberia project is beautiful and rather calming... At least it is to me.
Heres a quote I stole from her (this is the kind of thing I like to hear)
“I’m not interested in the political side of it at all. I don’t deny it and know it filters into the work, but I’m just not approaching it from that perspective. I’m interested in exploring inner exile and profound beauty as redemptive and liberating. There is that famous Dostoyevsky quote that ‘Beauty will redeem the world.’”
