About her work:
Aidan Salakhova works suggest an angle that diverges from the patriarchal model on which Western art history is based. Salakhova's marble works that are presented in Felsina, awaken our senses and surprise us with their sensuality. The sculptor's aesthetics of drapery and the body lead us towards the path of virtue, as the beauty that emanates from them can associated with the divine as well as playing on the idea of hide and seek through her use of veiling.
