After having her solo exhibition at the Perm Museum of Contemporary Art, an exceptionally gifted artist Sasha Frolova opens her new show Inflandia at the Luftmuseum in Amberg, Germany, on 29th April.
The sculptures of Russian artist Sasha Frolova are kind of eccentric: small and gigantic figures are made of brightly coloured latex and cause sensation in public space. Even more eccentric are her live performances. In 2014 she won the title of the Alternative Miss World with her hands down and was congratulated on this by a fellow British artist Andrew Logan, who holds Sasha’s works in great esteem! Sasha is also a performer artist who tours the world with her pop-art and electronic music project known as AQUAAEROBIKA. She and supporting dancers are dressed in fancy latex-outfits and sing electropop music. Sasha Frolova has the finger on the pulse and excites audience of all ages. On ARTE (german-french TV) was a report about the „Superheroine in Latex Dress“ that described her performance art as a mix of fetish, children’s fantasy and art. In her solo exhibition at the AIR MUSEUM Amberg, Frolova creates her own alternative dreamworld made of fantastic shapes and creatures, and invites the visitors to INFLANDIA. The show will run from 29th April to 30th July 2017.
