Lita Poliakova

(Ir)replaceable

It is a therapeutic project consisting of found and author’s photographs.
The Project is based on sensual experience of physical intimacy that aroused childhood memories of both emotional and skin-to-skin contact with the parent. It is a reconstruction of memory – re-creation of the ambience and space of congeniality and love, the fleshly embodiment of father’s love.

Note biografiche:

“When you touch me, I physically feel my father; I’m not longer an adult woman, but a small child in your arms. Through the veil of half-closed eyes, I can see myself, my little body being enveloped by your skin and dissolved in your smell. Warm pulsation mixes with sliding touches of cool and pale skin immersing me into the familiar bodily space”.
She has taken part in many exhibitions and publications.
