#WERKSTOFF Anna Slobodnik

In Anna Slobodnik’s (*1990, Moscow, Russia) works, patterns and ornaments experience a re–valuation through serial repetition in large formats. In contrast to a modernist logic that places the desire for ornamentation at the lowest level of cultural development, the artist engages with decorative elements and makes them the subject of her practice. Through a subtle play with the connotations of pattern in their proximity to lower crafts and female domains, she creates her own patterns as independent works displayed in response to the architecture of where they are presented.
