Mechanical DollsYuliya Lanina
In my work I explore cultural identity and sexuality through images of perverse yet innocent dolls. Taking cute and cuddly ready-mades and turning them into fetishistic objects, I construct my work on the intensity of coexistence of opposite extremes and remain open to a multiplicity of interpretations. Besides visual alterations, each doll requires electronic modifications as well. At the end it becomes one of a kind robotic creature, which starts by some kind of interaction with a viewer.
