Inna Babaeva creates surreal sculptures that engage themes of mass production, uniformity, and function. Starting with pre-fabricated objects that are widely available for purchase and consumption, Babaeva adds vibrant colors and industrial materials. These alterations undermine the objects’ intended functions, producing alien, provocative characters that inhabit a world where mundane objects become unique, time can stop, space can be altered, and gravity is an illusion.
