Working in black and white, Zelenkova‚Äôs photographs are often a nostalgic and melancholic representation of the present, that for her perpetually blends with the past, and vice versa. The images are mostly uninhabited and still; time is frozen, not only through the alchemic process of photography, but also through the subject matter itself: old museum exhibits, preserved period interiors, or historic paintings, among others. For ‘The Abscence of Myth’ the installation itself takes on the aesthetics of a museum exposition, creating a certain tension between the lyrical nature of the photographs and a detached, institutional-like presentation. The exhibition is accompanied by a limited edition artist publication, which also serves as an exhibition catalogue, bringing together the photographs, texts, and a poem written by French poet Ed Anon.
