Alexandra Falishtynskaya has begun a project of decorating the residency space with textiles, furniture and design objects at the invitation of the Golubitskoe Art Foundation. In her creative practice, Alexandra researches museum textile and folk crafts collections, familiarises herself with local manufactures and handicraft workshops, studies authentic handmade textile techniques native to the region and their refashioning through modern interior forms, and conducts surveys among decorative and applied arts professionals. As part of her residency at the Golubitskoe Art Foundation, the designer will select and to some extent create items for decorating living and working spaces for future guests of the Foundation and will put together a catalogue featuring the created and
collected interior pieces.
