(SHEIDLIN, ELLEN). Seigensha, I00210514, 2021. 6 x 8 in., 152 pages. Paperback. New.
Russian artist and model Ellen Sheidlin provides an almost limitless exploration of millennial culture with her Instagram feed. Her conceptual self-portrait photography is both whimsical and weird, and the young woman also uses her doll-like appearance to induce more disturbing, bizarre undertones and thought-provoking social commentary in her creations. The many different layers of Ellen’s absurd and beautiful dreamscapes point to the perils of social media and our obsession with technology, or hint at more troubling topics like the situation of LGBTQ+ people in Russia and today’s global existential angst. Escape into her chameleonic fantasy world with this mind-bending collection. 9784861527807 Inventory Number: I00210514
