Portrait


Artist Nadia Kisseleva is bringing her provocative art to the MAC with her exhibition titled Document.

Document is a powerful collection of portraits of people imprisoned during the Stalinist era in the former Soviet Union.

Kisseleva was born and educated in Russia. In 1980 she moved to Kenya, and in 1996 moved to the UK and worked in Birmingham.

Her childhood has led to an insight into the Stalin regime and informed her art work. The monochrome pictures echo the black and white photographs on which they are based.

Whilst Kisseleva's art has a history, I couldn't help but think her portraits are reminiscent of the 19th Century Impressionist movement, popularised by Monet, Renoir and Degas.

Exploring this exhibition certainly gives you food for thought.
