About Leni Smoragdova:

About 6 years ago I began my art research about hidden faces inside modern society. I called this project Transaction. I look through different edges of the society: social, politic and etc Art transaction (Wiki, Financial transaction, an agreement, communication, or movement carried out between a buyer and a seller to exchange an asset for payment), The philosophy of art transaction arose as a reaction to the cult of the “Golden calf” of the generations of the 80’s – 00’s, thereby, in the opinion of transaction, put people in the condition of loss of spiritual realities and propaganda “hidden faces”.
I would like to propose that people from around the world submit their unique visions of “Hidden Faces.” #Selfie a popular manifestation of identity on social media like Facebook and Instagram. Taking Selfie idea and turning it into #HiddenFaces would be a declaration and depiction of critical reality as a litmus test: Transaction goes beyond just an image or idea, it would create a cluster of images and self-expressions that connect people from around the world and prove it’s real. This would make an international statement of “Transaction Network Art” on a global stage.
