My room — is a magic space, inner empire, my asylum, where I can be myself, where I can feel myself in safety, where I can create.

— Tanya Akhmetgalieva

The series of works where I can find myself, this is my personal space where I’m thinking about, reflecting on, looking for… Memories about the past and dreams about the future dwell here.

I interweave old fragments of my dreams with heared phrases, sense of rhythm, old secrets, phases of movement. I dig up and reveal hidden meaning, create the shells and fill the gaps and hollow spaces. I put a questions and transform my reality.

My room – is a magic space, inner empire, my asylum, where I can be myself, where I can feel myself in safety, where I can create. Only here I can hear my inner voice and see dreams…

Is this room real or it is just a myth in my past? Probably, I’m looking for it, for this abandoned Paradise that is left in my home of childhood.

PHOTOGRAPHER — TANYA Akhmetgalieva, Dmitry Shishkin.
