Karina Skvirsky

Through the mediums of photography and installation, my work “documents” daily activities in different daily settings.  I make self-portraits as triptychs to explore the passage of time and the relationship of the individual to the environment.  I am interested in alluding to performance and voyeurism to investigate the role of the photograph as a document and a representation of culture.
