ALINA KUNITSYNA INVESTIGATES THE PHENOMENA OF SENSUALITY AND THE TRANSCENDENTAL

Widewalls

At first glance, it might seem as though Alina Kunitsyna is portraying reality in her versatile practice. Her pieces look very much like everyday objects: pieces of clothing such as coats, shoes and scarves, or items like boxes. The truth is, however, that the artist presents these as a sort of a cover for a much complex conceptual narrative hidden underneath their surfaces. Her reproductions are impeccable at translating the real objects for what they are, but they still only serve as the basis for something much deeper. Alina Kunitsyna’s new body of work and a machine by Paul Skrepek, will soon be on view at KS Room, for a show organized in collaboration with Lisa Kandlhofer of LisaBird Contemporary.
