Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art invites you to visit an exhibition of futuristic dolls Catherine and Elena Popov's Non-Human.

Visitors will be able to see provocative creatures whose images are regularly published in the pages of Vogue, The New York Times, HuffPost and Infringe; appreciate the contemporary art and fashion industry phenomenon that captivated Jean-Paul Gaultier, photographer Nick Knight, Louis Vuitton shoe designer Fabrizio Viti, singers Grimes and FKA Twigs.

If the word "doll" conjures up images of a rubber baby doll, a barbie fashionista, or a painted doll, be warned: the Non-human exhibition may shock you. The work of sisters Katya and Lena Popovs is a radically different view of what a doll can be. Whatever image the artists choose for their dolls: seductive widows, schoolgirls tattooed to look like gzhel, or cybergirls, each of them has an aesthetic ideal. However, this ideal is far from being standard: for the Popov sisters, there is no line between the beautiful and the ugly, the forbidden and the permitted, the human and the inhuman.

Prepared according to the materials of the official website Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art.
