Baskunchak salt lake

For the past two years my artistic practice has been devoted to the topic of the sea. I studied the ancient Perm Sea, which existed 250 million years ago and left after itself many traces. I explored these traces and traveled a huge territory, studying ancient reefs, minerals, salt lakes which were left by the Perm Sea and how people live with this heritage now.
