Artist StatementVera Fainshtein incorporates video, sound and theatrical stage-like sets to produce environments that purposely blur the boundary between art and life. Her installations are preoccupied with and even dazzled by the space of the everyday existence. Her materials are common objects: old wallpaper, taste of red wine, an arm holding an umbrella, sounds of rain as well as thousands of other things... Encouraging the viewers to use their senses, the artist’s ambition is to recreate a feeling of lived, felt space, a sensuous space, subjectively and bodily perceived.
