The first mask made in a series of Ceramic Masks (2017) became a part of an experimental installation for the OXY(MORON) show.
The series of masks are influenced by Baba Yaga character in her role of an ancient earth goddess, which stands between the world of dead and living creatures. As often in some versions of myths closed eyes or physical inability to see replaces death of a personage or their connection to the other world.
The four masks were first shown at The Bare Minimum show, London, 2017.
