20 x 20 x 20 cm, 2020 porcelain, glaze
In this work Julia deliberately avoids male plasticity in sex scenes, deconstructing the patriarchal male language in order to create a new language of lesbian* rebellion against heterosexual society. The artist creates a frank homage to the 18th century porcelain sculptures, which depicted scenes from the life of a heterosexual couple, as closely as possible to the standards of the time. Belova also often refers to the culture of hedonism of the Baroque era flirting with fast food.
