Did she drown?

What does our "highbrow" curator say about the series

This question will be asked to you first when one see this picture on your wall. The answer no, she is just swimming. This is a picture of Katya Tzareva – the artist who also works in the field of architecture and landscape design. Her interdisciplinary practices converge in the spaces inside her paintings. Their geometrics are composed of planes of lawns and 'white cube' constructions, inhabited by animate and inanimate characters. In the painting “Alyona is Swimming in a Pool” a third form of being (exept human and architecture) emerges – a duck. This is a certain nod to Lucien Freud, who portrayed dogs side by side with human nudes, revealing them as different, yet unified in their corporeality. So in the works by Tzareva animals act as another element, against which the human identity is defined, floating between the man-made and the natural.
