ANNA JERMOLAEWA | KREMLIN

ARTIST STATEMENT
Location 1: Moscow, 2008, Red Square, a setting that embodies state power and its ceremonial presence like no other - we need only think of the display of muscle at the military parade there every year on May 9th. Lokation 2: Turkey, Antalya - the Kremlin Palace Hotel, a “doppelganger” of the Moscow original completed in 2003 - but as a resort: sun, sea and plenty of bare skin. 70% of the guests are tourists from Russia or the former republics of the USSR. In her photographs Anna Jermolaewa tells the tale of this unique replica and the original.
