- About the work
Arsen Savadov’s photographic series of models posing in contemporary fashion in a graveyard was published in a fashion magazine. The titles are the names of the models, the fashion houses that designed the garments, and their price in dollars. In the background funerals and burials are taking place, with mourners gathered around coffins about to be lowered into the ground. The series from this old orthodox churchyard in Kiev is part of the larger project “Deepinsider”, in which the artist explored other places where people carry out their work, including a mine and a greenhouse. Combining fashion with a graveyard may appear blasphemous or provocative, but death is a given subject for Savadov. Only cheerful Americans can avoid discussing it, he once said.
