Olga Fedorova’s psycho-political states of anxiety + sexiness in Generic Jungle at Annka Kultys, Nov 15 – Dec 16

13 November 2017

Olga Fedorova presents solo exhibition Generic Jungle at London’s Annka Kultys Gallery opening November 15 and running to December 16.

The exhibition of new ‘lenticular pictures’ by Russian artist Fedorova will be the first solo exhibition at the gallery. While trained in painting, her present work has shifted towards a multi-media approach that highlights “passionate, wild and strange women.” Her interest in composition, new technology, animals and digital media among others things come together to intersect and create situations out of dreamlike protagonist scenarios.

Using a “tongue-in-cheek symbolism and oblique political commentary,” Fedorova looks at psycho-political states of anxiety through the symbol of ‘sexiness’ and female sensuality.

Piercing through skin to reach bone in Form Cannibalism at the The Stable, Mar 24 – Apr 30

21 March 2017

The Form Cannibalism group exhibition is on at Waregem’s The Stable, opening March 24 and running to April 30.

The show features work by Aline Bouvy, Joachim Coucke, Olga Fedorova, Indrikis Gelzis, Erin Jane Nelson, Anna Solal, Cleo Totti and Tom Volkaert.

In an exploration of the parallels between artist and cannibal, the exhibition references Bill Shutt’s thoughts in Cannibalism: A perfectly natural history (2017) where he researches human consumption over the centuries. Piercing through outer layers to reach flesh and bones, each artist reflect in one way or another “the current state of the body” and “leaving nothing untouched” in the research of their subjects.

An installation of sculpture and prints occupied the two floors of the gallery. The ground floor took on an office aesthetic, and the first floor displayed work by the invited artists which was placed around Coucke’s hanging sculptures to create a tension and dialogue. Inspired by the concept of rapid growth, the exhibition explored artificial intelligence and the influence of big data on daily life.**
