Soldiers of the Sun, or the Right to the Future Time

Alexandra Lerman shows nature as a full-fledged participant in the evolution process, having its own opinion about the people’s role in the planet history. The exhibits at the Museum of Hygiene: a poster about the Sosnowski’s hogweed, a stuffed Pavlov dog and glass anatomical figures, inspired the artist to create a series of cyanotype photograms that change the focus of a common museum exhibition.
