Olga Matveeva: Intrusion

The series "Intrusion" is a sequence of documentary and staged photographs, produced in Serbia, Slovenia and Russia in 2015 - 2016.

They were combined into a metaphoric story that consists of mythological forms and legends with a reference to inevitably repeating milestones in the history. When the night falls we are charmed by vampires, chimeras and other seductive creatures, luring us into the world of a sweet anabiosis. The terrible and the beautiful change places: in war we see ecstasis that is close to sexual one, in sex we see the denial of death, and the death itself acquires grim aesthetic deepness.
