Mixed-media | Installation | Queer
Working from lived experiences as a queer Russian immigrant, Usva Inei explores the suppression of freedom of speech of LGBTQ+ individuals in Russia in midst of stringent anti-LGBTQ+ laws. The installation makes use of drypoint prints, charcoal, acrylics and modeling paste to create a scene that combines imagery of mass-built social housing with police suppression of LGBTQ+ rights protests.
