    Опрокинутая, перевернутая | Overturned, Inverted, 2021

    Watercolours transform the nature of the canvas: when absorbed, it leaves delicate glowing shades — the undertones that, among the taut pencil lines, create a quirky topography over the female face and neck, changing the movement and the speed of our glance.

    Щелкунчик | The Nutcracker, 2021

    Faces of the military are more and more often covered with masks or face-paint nowadays since weaponry favours anonymity. However, when service coat comes into the picture, something must be shown on the face as well — and here, we usually stumble across the deficiency of personality.

    The neon features Bratkov gave to the uniformed mannequin are quite nominal: it looks like a nose, a doodle, and a question mark at the same time — what is even written here?

    In Zarva’s artwork, figures pose in front of curtains dressed in recognizable clothes of the 70s fashion. The artist plays with the iconography of a dress-up photoshoot, resembling the session in a Soviet photo salon.

    Почетный заказ | Honourable Order, 2021

    Maestro of mutations and transgressions shows us not the other side, but some kind of tilted "ordered fudge". In the sculptor's workshop, there is an equestrian monument that, at first glance, looks like a thousand of other modern equestrian statues of military leaders. However, strange aberrations, comparable to the vagaries of nature, occur, endowing the inconspicuous nightjar bird with an unusually huge beak, sounding like a motorcycle roar.
