Who?

Masha Volkova is an object artist. She creates sculpture-like furnitures 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 on often
overlooked objects. Her practice is an ongoing investigation around dynamics of
objectification, inviting 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.
