The absurd video Masks is a political party without politics, just gastronomical fun, music and unrestrained dancing. The artist creates a variety of these media personalities. Dressed herring salad, caviar, lemonade and other Soviet insignia are devoured by the guests hiding behind the masks of celebrities

“I am an artist-observer and position myself in relation to the generation ‘children of perestroika’. Often, the heroes of my works are people who become symbols: time, place, generations, events. I am interested in ‘the human’ and in questions of identification and the everyday absurdity that surrounds us; in the link between the past and the present. Art, for me, is first and foremost a space for experiment. I am in favor of risk, attempts and doubts, ‘unexplored territories”.
