[T]he Impronte Gallery, who has recently changed its name in Laura Bulian Gallery, is pleased to present an exhibition by Anastasia Khoroshilova, the Russian photo-artist’s second solo show in Italy. Following her exhibition Russkie, hosted at our gallery in 2009, and her participation in the project Stare Novosti, 2011 at the 54th Venice Biennale, Anastasia Khoroshilova returns to our spaces with a photo exhibition entitled The Obedient. The exhibition includes the entire photo cycle The Obedient, 2008 and a selection from Trees, 2009.
Anastasia Khoroshilova’s work should be viewed within the context of social anthropology; the artist has always focused on the daily and contemporary reality of individuals living in closed and isolated societies, uniqueness as part of a group. She opens a channel of communication whereby the observer can establish contact with the subjects of her photography. “I’m interested in finding the point where global social space intersects with collective systems that are typical of isolated communities, where the absence of external stimuli contributes to the definition of stereotyped roles. Every external testimony unmasks the psychological schemes within the community’s approved relations and reveals the details that differentiate each individual” Anastasia Khoroshilova, 2008.
Anastasia Khoroshilova (www.khoroshilova.net), was born in Moscow in 1978. She lives and works in Berlin and Moscow.
