About the artwork
The Alkonost, a legendary entity with a woman’s head in a bird’s body, is present in different expressions of Slavic folklore. It has roots back in ancient Greece and a personal connection to the artist's first creations in Kyiv. The artwork's mythological aura invites the viewer into its blue depths and swirling patterns. The cyan pools of Morpho butterflies are filled plentifully by a tropical rain of Papilio Blumei tails. The artwork is a circular trance of soothing raindrops and spiraling butterflies in this exquisite collage, fully embodying the uniqueness of Edenmont's work.
About the artist
"I grew up in the Soviet Union and was educated in classical painting. During art school, I studied all old masters, and when I later had the opportunity to travel, I visited numerous museums around the world. I cannot remember the names of all the artists, but their works are protected in my visual memory. When I moved to Sweden I abandoned painting and turned my interest to photography. However, I have stuck to the concept of creating the objects in my images with real material, I do not just “find” the motive. All my photographs are meticulously staged, and I frequently use materials from nature, like flowers and insects. But my classical education does not leave me. Instinctively, my works refer back to art history."
- Nathalia Edenmont
Born in Yalta, Crimea, 1970, Edenmont trained at State Art School of Kiev, Soviet Union, Simferopol State Art School, Crimea, and Forsberg’s International School of Design, Stockholm, Sweden. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States and can be found in private and public collections globally including the Modern Museum Stockholm, Miami Art Museum and Moscow House of Photography Museum among others. In February 2014, Swedish public television broadcast a one hour documentary about Edenmont and her work. Edenmont has lived in Sweden since 1991.
