Sasha Yakutina

About the artist

Sasha Yakutina was born in Yoshkar-Ola in 2001.

Lives and works in Moscow. Sasha Yakutina uses the collage method in her work, constructing complex epic and cinematic scenes that reference the staged photographs by Bernard Faucon, Ryan Schude. The subjects are based on the irony of modern society with its endless tangible and emotional consumption – the overabundance of things and experiences is literally reflected in the works. Sasha Yakutina creates photo and video collages derived from user and advertising Internet content from the 2010s-2020s, images found in various sources, ranging from popular social media to abandoned forums – the artist uses traces of contemporary culture.

By assembling even the most absurd subjects, Sasha Yakutina strives to leave a sense of reality in them, which encourages the viewer to become involved and to examine the many details. “Clickbait” of her works is also in their emotional intensity – the psychosis of society as a stream of desires all at once that cannot be satisfied. As the artist herself says: “To get tired of the constant feast, but not to have the courage to leave it”.
