Edexcel GCSE Art Exam 2018 Fragments Anastasia Savinova Photograph Collage Buildings

Anastasia Savinova is a russian-born artist  living in Sweden. A background in architectural studies led her to create these  large scale photo collages. Each collage is comprised of loads of layer of photographs shot in various European capital cities. 

The series is titled “Genius Loci”, which according to the Romans was a protective spirit of a dwelling, takes on a more contemporary meaning which refers to a location’s distinctive atmosphere. Savinovas’s collages are more than a collection of contrasting doors, windows, and roof lines, they explore the structure of life in their connection with the land and the spirit of the place.
