ABOUT

PRANNA is an artist and visionary. At the center of her work is a man who lives in an era of globalization and informational abundance, the influence of which on consciousness isn’t still fully understood. PRANNA is attempting to do this by creating paintings and sculptures from recycled plastic.

what and

why?

PRANNA has developed her own style in art - parametric symbolography, in which through the symbols embedded in the cultural-historical code, the role of a person inside accelerating information flows, as well as the principles of his self-determination in the 21st century, are explored.

“Who are we today? Where are we going? What is the social model of the future? ” - perhaps these simple and at the same time extremely complex questions PRANNA asks the world in which each of us is the creator and consumer of information, which, like plastic, in the BIG DATA era doesn’t disappear without a trace, but forms the space in which we and our descendants have to live. At the same time, the artist isn't against  the "digitalization" of modern homo ludens - the "person playing", as defined by Johan Hoizing, but reveals the ideas of responsibility for presence in both real and virtual environments, at the same time expanding the concept of ecology. Recognizable heroes in the form of anonymous anthropomorphic creatures appear in all works of PRANNA in the form of characters of art objects, and actors of the performance. The images created by the artist embody several ideas at the same time: in her works, the artist purposely removes the drama of a particular person, highlighting social issues. Second, PRANNA tries to operate with symbols and archetypes to convey ideas that are free of geographical, gender, ethnic, religious, political subjectivity and leaves the essence: the human principle is common and one in each.

and what else?

The artist creates paintings and sculptures in the author’s technique, as well as performance, multimedia and digital installations. Her video works were presented at the Cannes Lions festival and awarded by members of the international jury. PRANNA exhibits can be seen in the exposition of the Tretyakov Gallery and other state museums, as well as in private collections of collectors around the world. Art objects made of recycled plastic are the result of an analysis of the cultural codes of the present and future. One of the main theses of PRANNA related to her work - Art and mind should not be decomposed.

Thus, in her search, PRANNA not only appeals to the traditions of the past, but also helps to build a future in which environmentally damaging plastic turns out to be both a material and a symbol of the consequences of human presence in the new world, transforming into real examples of artistic culture.
