Limited edition of 30 with a choice of two prints signed and numbered in a clamshell box.
Michal Chelbin's latest body of work, made in prisons in the Ukraine and Russia, explores what it means to be locked and constantly watched.
"The images are about a kind of discomfort-theirs, hers, mine and ours. It is like an old fashioned staring contest-one guy looks at the other and the first one who blinks is the loser, except Michal Chelbin never blinks. Instead she captures with the click of a shutter. Chelbin is always looking, drawing what is hidden to the surface. She captures-we shudder."
