Media and genres collide and merge in the work of Russian artist Anna Parkina, an intrepid explorer of the dynamics of perception and history. Using a visual language that sometimes recalls the early-20th-century Soviet avant-garde but is very much her own, Parkina's works on paper reflect on the changes in Moscow since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
