I thank my luck that in 1971 my mom, Tamara and my dad, Alexandr, gave birth to my twin sister Natalia, my lifemate, and me, on the Kola Peninsula in the small town Kirovsk that embosomed in mountains, in the USSR. My parents have taught me one of the most important things – Trust is a system of navigation -Trust is one more dimension.
Thanks to such coincidence:
In the end of 80th I met Elena Vladimirivna at the normal school in Murmansk, who taught biology there. She opened an opportunity for me to go up to the university. I understood then – In order to enter a new city you have to find a trustworthy guide. And making with him right move once, afterwards you go only your way.
In 90th, my youth coincided with the release of Zemfira’s first album. Inspired with her language style I wrote my first book, determined what I wanted to do, and met my love. I realized then that a human is imperfect not because he can’t, but because he don’t know how much he can.
Then I met Ira and Vladimir, and that meeting showed me how to expand the scope of boundaries. I have learned new countries then. I’ve been in Barcelona and know now what Ravalejar is. I understood there that Art is being created everywhere under the opened sky. Art, in actual fact, is the world transformed. And then I comprehended what should be my works. The Reality is much more richer than the most sophisticated imagination.
2014 coincided with the showing the series “Lost Girl”. The film roused me to learn new languages. I became to read, speak and communicate English and then other languages. A new language opened a new huge World. I’ve been in London and met there a wonderful girl, Alexandra. Through all those events my sister and I created the “Concept Of Nine” at that time. The more brightly you look at your life the more colors it takes.
2015 was eventful and meaningful one. There was acquaintance with a photographer from Rio de Janeiro, who had an influence on my conception of space. I’ve learned about Vivian Maier, and that changed my perception of photography and not only that.
The movie “Carol” came out in this year (director Todd Heynes, adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s book “Price Of Salt”). The movie which reveals taste of life.
Yet I have a long list of names which make me alive: Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Elizabeth II, and other people that I love. Thanks to them I go my way. Who am I? If only not whom I see.
