What is not possible today will become possible tomorrow.
Space cradle develops and continues a visual research of Anna Bochkova about theories of the future from Eastern perspectives. Her sculptures take inspiration from rethinking Avant-garde concepts, sci-fi movies and from contemplation of Cosmism.
Anna Bochkova’s ceramic objects on the one side seem to look like utility items, cloth, dolls and on the other they resemble a map or a digital landscape which forms spatial puddles as if it was liquid.
A repeated image of cradle derives from former Soviet birth hospitals and questions the role of conceptual universes – perfect fictional worlds, arising from the fallen utopia, destroyed infrastructure, abandoned factories and desertification.
