Seamstresses, 2009-2010, 4 boxes, 18 x 12, 50 x 16, 50 cm each, photography, mirror, wood,
In her work of Stela Vasileva, Seamstresses 2009–2010, the artist uses the form of a box as an object.
Through their nice, minimalist appearance the four boxes enclose a classic plot in art: a moment of the everyday life of a working woman.
The artist employs photographic images of working women and machines as structural units into an orderly, crystal-like and “beautiful” formation of mirror images that possess a kaleidoscopic mysticism and attractiveness. Leda Ekimova
