Evgeniya Martirosyan's current body of work addresses philosophical and scientific question on the nature of our reality. This solid, linear and objective world of our common senses might be just an illusion, although a very coherent and persistent one. Evgeniya attempts to capture this sense of fluidity and elusiveness of reality by creating dynamic and interactive sculptural work. Her installations often incorporate a diverse range of materials and visual effects: such as water, metal, glass, reflections and projections. As forms and images endlessly appear and dissolve, Evgeniya hopes to destabilise the viewers normal perception of reality and introduce an element of mystery and wander.
