"Misplaced Touches" Anna Zvyagintseva
“Misplaced Touches” features sculpture, graphic art, installations and animation, as well as found photographs of imperceptible touches in public and private life, from maternal to civic, discovered on social media. These ostensibly abstract works document and highlight elusive but physically lingering touches that exist on the plain of sensuous experience. The artist transforms this experience through the lens of various art media.
The monumental installation is based on a found photograph. The artist seems to anonymize the bodies, discarding their volume. The installation’s line connects the two exhibition spaces, turning into a line of contact, a metaphor for one territory’s or one body’s infringement on the other. The artist anonymizes these territories, stripping them of physical dimensions. The line remains a visible boundary for the act of infringement/touch, leaving the possibility of memory and memory traces of physical interactions.
