Each of us in our life, to one degree or another, is faced with fears and psychotraumas. But not everyone can and knows how to overcome them. Often, this is due to the destructive essense of our fears and the inability to understand their matter. We feel uncomfortable and don’t understand how to cope with mental problems, we don’t have the right instruments and skills for this, we find ourselves cornered by our own consciousness.
Victoria Rosenman’s work is aimed at exploring her own identity, searching for a fragile, elusive balance, to engage in an internal dialogue with ourselves and interpersonal relationships. The main questions that the artist explores in her works: Who are you? Who am I? What do others see in me? Who am I for you? Who am I without you? The thin edge between the artist and her emotional twin, her muse, with which she has a dialogue, clearly shows the viewers how fragile and unstable the inner world of each of us is.
Victoria Rosenman’s Concept of Mitigation project explores the essence of our subconscious phobias, psychological traumas and offers various utopian instruments, psychograms, material objects and abstract solutions that help to mitigate the burden of thoughts oppressing us, to alleviate inner anxiety.
The exposition is a sort of glossary, in which every work is a term noting various conditions, feelings (life and death, vulnerability, beauty, the end, tribute offering, desire to be demanded) and some objects directed to facilitate, mitigate the strong of these experiences.
Victoria Rosenman (born in 1986 in St. Petersburg) lives and works in Berlin. After studying art in Switzerland, she received a scholarship from the PIC Selected for her project About destroying a muse. She works with multimedia and her works are represented in private collections, galleries and museums.
