My Name is Legion

Merging philosophy and art, Zhanna Bobrakova is interested a carnivalesque concept by Bakhtin. Her work explores an opportunity of the other life and liberation from prevailing awe. Using methods taken from carnival such as masking, ie that which conceals and reveals at the same time, she takes the repetition and replication from the concept of simulacrum from Deleuze. Repetition creates a certain rhythm, evolves difference and produces the new entity.
There are correlation between these notions and her art practice. Artworks Zhanna creates are a kind of simulation. There are no single objects that have their identity and single stories – the artwork is a cloud. The movement and multiplicity holds power and force.
