Irina Korina’s speciality in the Moscow art scene is installation. Her material is usually various “textures” of decorating plastics, widely found in building-material shops. And visually, any of Korina’s installations, at first glance, represents a fantastic “something”, almost always demanding from the viewer certain effort in order to appreciate it. If conceptual installation develops from the part to the whole, then Korina’s way – is visual abstraction, born out of very distinct specifics.
Her complex installations are filled with numerous allusions in the attempt to communicate a rather complicated emotion, a vague memory of a certain period of time in its visual-mental diversity. The viewer, perplexed from the start, fairly quickly begins to easily perceive the parameters of the epoch, the nostalgic nuance of expression and the witty plastic interpretation. And precisely this strange gap, a kind of niche between “repair” plasticity and psychological exercises, is Korina’s “point of interest”, her know-how.
