''Nowadays, humanity and technology are merged together. We use technology as a mask in our life. We are represented by online avatars, we’re data. And there is a murky layer between data and reality.'' - Zhanna Bobrakova
Emerging Russian artist Zhanna Bobrakova fuses her art work and contemporary philosophy in relation as starting point of her creative process and practises across the discipline of photography and sculture (My Name is Legion). In her art prints she creates a juxtapositions of memories, personal experiences and technology (Mask) exploring the concepts of replication, repetition, rhythm and simulation.

In the series Attunement Zhanna Bobrakova looks for points of contacts between photography and sound «not by what it represents, but through establishing a sequence.» she explains. Echoing the works of Caravaggio she plays with strong contrast of lights and darkness, constructing images which evoke sounds.

In Reanimation the artist, who is taking inspiration from the oeuvre of Frida Kahlo and Magritte, blurs the line between visual conventions and self-consciousness examining the simple life- essential act of breathing.
