Contemporary society in India: aesthetic modernity before social modernity.
Exodus | Marcus Lyon
Exodus is an exploration of the most significant migrations of the early 21st Century. As the ability of humans, goods and services to circumnavigate the planet increases exponentially we are left disconnected from a simple view of our common identity. Indeed, as our economic and geo-political differences intensify, the unstoppable movement and expansion of actual and digital assets challenge the power of the individual in society, the state and corporations to control opinions, actions and environments. Exodus provokes questions concerning the biggest changes in contemporary society through large-scale representations of the key themes that influence globalization in the modern world.

Having studied environmental design, Savinova evokes the essence of European cities in her work Genius Loci. According to the ancient Romans, the “genius loci” is the protective spirit of a dwelling, a spectre possessed with the distinctive atmosphere of a city. By cobbling together domestic structures specific to each culture, Savinova’s collages are more than a medium of contrasting doors, windows, and roof lines. The works become an entirely new organism composed of the many specific parts unique to its’ genesis. Genius Loci is the ephemeral mood and mind of manmade landscape, the various hobbles and haunts home to something more.
