Sveta's Books (2009)
Sveta's Books is the project which explores concepts of art, beauty and death through imaginary diary of russian ballerina Sveta (actually russian kind of Barbie doll). Obsessed with idea of being fraud I sent my alter ego- shabby 5 inch high doll ( and me) into year long journey through Europe. She lives the most beautiful and spiritual way - travels on splendid gardens, romantic cities, famous museums . At the end she dies in Paris  right at Jardin du Luxembourg. Russian proverb "To see Paris and die!" means to fulfill all one's dreams. Ultimate death of ultimate beauty.The end similar to Edgar Poe maxima  "The death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world."
The second name of the project is Impostor Syndrome.
