The Replacement

Event organised by Dasha Bolkhovitina

In objects from “The Replacement” blocks series, the artist addresses the problems of memories and nature. Trees function as a symbol of a living organism that preserves the memory of generations and is an eyewitness to events. A branch twisting, intertwining, and winding symbolizes the life of a memory: breaking off from the tree, it does not die, but acquires a new life, being reborn in its meaning.

Dasha Bolkhovitina (n.Russia, 1996), is an artist and sculptor working in various glass techniques, mostly with kiln glass casting. For Dasha, the essential moment is the conversation between the artist and the material, in the course of which the glass itself guides the movement of its inner life. Each particular artist artwork or series combines the power of nature and this philosophy.
