In the installation at the Republic Gallery objects step out into the space, creating a labyrinthian , with larger translucent screens suspended and smaller artworks occupying surfaces and meander throughout the space, forming a landscape.
The show is formed of older works, primarily those ones created during the residency at the Crypt Gallery, and new works which are inspired by the location of the gallery, the history and the landscape of East India Docks. Visual poetry finds voice through a series of recordings and a set of performances taking place during the show.

Evgenia is a poet and artist. Sound, word, poetry, drawing are the primary elements of her current work. Through installations and performances Evgenia creates experiences, which invite the audience to question the boundaries of perception. Her visual artworks are most often created in a contemplative manner, to invite self-reflection. Whether they are exact geometric creations constructed over a period of a few months time or intuitive expressive drawings, created in one single breath, they draw upon the idea of arts practice as an ever evolving internal discipline. The latter is always the reflection of one’s mind.
Evgenia’s sonic explorations are focused on working with voice as the primary tool. It is always accessible, always available to us - to reclaim voice as means of communicating beyond language, through more abstracted sound.
