Faceless House

about Katerina Belkina

This is about Samara, an average Russian city where the flight of time has stopped: a racy city, which nevertheless seems faceless. This is a repetitive nightmare haunted your dreams: you roam the streets looking for your house among identical houses, and your search threatens to last forever. No one is around. Only the emptiness. A human being in search for a “cozy place” to call it home.

This is about the loss of faith in the Divine, the way this world has become absurdly material: the material growth is impossible without spiritual. And this is about a body, to accept the way it is. The appearance as a key to our destiny: while changing our appearance, we change our essence.

This is not a man’s world.

Born in Samara, in the southeast of European Russia, Katerina Belkina was brought up in an creative atmosphere by her mother, a visual artist. Her education as painter at the Art Academy, and from 2000 at the school for Photography of Michael Musorin in Samara, gave her the tools to visualize her ideas. Exhibitions of her sublime, mystic self-portraits ensued in Moscow and Paris.

In 2007, she was nominated for the prestigious Kandinsky Prize in Moscow. Recently she got the Hasselblad Masters Prize. Currently she lives and works in Berlin.
