The Sacred and Profane Anna Zavileiskaia
I’m quite sure that Anna never gets bored.
Anna Zavileiskaia was born in Moscow and trained as architect now living and works in Budapest.
On her breaks, like any creator has, Anna cuts little people from cards and play with them, as if she was creating imaginary friends, playing with them and with light and shades and scales and movement giving life and funny moments to them. She understands architecture as human temples, sacred places in which we should feel comfort, safety and protection. Playing with human scales leaving place to our souls to inhabit within us.
But when she goes out she is wittier, stealing and freezing moments in her catch-me-if-you-can street photography.
This exhibition came out natural if you know Anna’s work. She’s human and she’s a voyeur of her kind. She’s architect and she observes human temples. She’s photographer and she registers the sacred moments. She’s a traveler and an avid culturally curious. She’s kind yet demanding because she knows that only this way you can grow up wiser.
Anna tells short stories in her street photography from around the world, and it’s impossible to dissociate Anna human from Anna architect from Anna photographer. She doesn’t play with people. She secretly dance with them. She observes them playing as she plays with light and shade and shapes and forms. In the most sacred and profane way. Anna is there and she gives herself to us this way: her way. Sacred and profane. Whenever is needed. For our own joy.
And this is why you can’t miss her exhibition “Sacro e Profano” if you’re in Rome.
But if you are not, you can’t miss her work online either.
