Text by Ekaterina Lazareva:

This is a spontaneous expression of inadvertent combinations of useful information and reflections, routine affairs and the ambitious plans, of what was planned and what has occurred. The lectures outlines spilling over into shopping lists, a counting of election's votes adjoining to eternal truth, the calendars of deadlines interrupted by kid's drawings and other absurd combinations that mark day-to-day existence. It is a present time archeology, where private life is inseparable from work, and creative activity is inseparable from social communications. It is a document of a fight between will for knowledge and time management with irreversible dispersion of energy.

Text by Andrey Parshikov:

In her art projects Ekaterina Lazareva focuses on everyday chronicles, studies laboriously ordinary life and shows the present "at arm's length". In her works big and loud social subjects are always proportioned to human scale and personal experience, whether they are questions of migration, female identity, or inner questions of art and its language.
