Many of Natalia Khlebtsevich’s installations are marked by the presence of biological components. The primary media of her work are clay and porcelain which, by way of firing, become permanently unchangeable, thus signifying the irrevocable terminality. Juxtaposed to this nominal timelessness, the biological, obviously mortal parts stand as contrapuntal elements embodying life and growth, constantly changing the visual perception of the objects. Some of the installations include light and water and soundtracks epitomizing the passage of time. The work is not in a state of standstill, the accompanying living things and recorded sounds induce the viewers in the process of its creation engaging them to participate in artist’s exploration of human condition and the perception of time.
