Two of our most recent projects have shown you life within one todays prominent conflicts.These images show life before Ukraine’s recent fall into violence. Luhansk in the East of Ukraine, is trapped in a fight between Pro-Russian separatists and the Ukrainian Army. Once a bustling industrial city, now a ghost town, Luhansk was already looking desolated in these pre-conflict images. The desolation is disconcerting as a viewer. Where are the people who live there? Aesthetically, however, their emptiness is what makes them so appealing. See more of Evgeniy’s work here.
Jeff Koons, ‘Woman In Tub’, 1988, Porcelain
"Woman in Tub, based on a postcard, depicts a female nude acting out a crude sexual joke in the bathtub. Jeff Koons explained: “There’s a snorkel and somebody is doing something to her under the water because she’s grabbing her breasts for protection. But the viewer also wants to victimize her.” The cartoonlike rendering of the form belies the exquisite hard-paste porcelain finish, typical of 18th-century Rococo figurines. Part of his Banality series, which is characterized by oddly eroticized, comic, and kitsch images, this work demonstrates Duchampian and Pop Art strategies of appropriation and, combining imagery from multiple sources, makes the primary subject taste itself.”
