Masha Volkova /Visual Art/
Presenting "The Living Room"
Collection of love-infused furniture, celebrating human connections.
In a world where objects often remain lifeless and devoid of meaning, Masha Volkova infuses her work with whimsical shapes and intricate textures. She invites the audience to see beyond the mere utility of furniture and experience the essence of a person.
As you explore “The Living Room”, you'll find yourself immersed in a realm, where a lamp, table, or cabinet takes on a life of its own. It is an exploration of the profound impact people and objects have on our lives.
Masha Volkova is an object artist. She creates sculpture-like furniture and furniture-like sculptures in which she decodes the personality of objects. Her works are characters with wooden skeletons. These characters transmit through explicit shapes and textures. Layered structures and loaded facades attract curiosity and invite to take a closer look at often-overlooked objects. Her practice is an ongoing investigation around the dynamics of objectification, asking us to consider not only the functions of everyday objects but also their ethics and meanings. A couch rears up, and a cabinet falls in love. An object is alive, and it has stories to tell. Listen with your eyes.
