Aleksandra Chaushova

Burotica

Reality and fiction are never far apart in the technically brilliant and highly detailed pencil drawings of Alexandra Chaushova (1985, Bulgaria). She sets out in her work to uncover the mechanisms we use to give shape to our own history. How do memories arise? How do they relate to collective memories, which are actually a combination of many individual, subjective stories? In her graphic work, Chaushova acts at times like a virus gradually taking control of archive documents.
