“Asya and Dmitriy Kosin’s Art Group is a creative duet focused on exploring the possibilities of contemporary paper sculptures.” They are drawn to unique and complex designs, simultaneously inspired by them to tell the stories through photographs and limited edition prints. “Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the Baroque era,” the paper artist Asya Kozina says. “This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. The paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed with unnecessary details.” Wigs found in Baroque and Rococo styles have always had their charming decorations of exotic fruits and birds but Kozina wished to connect the old times with the present time, so she switched fruits and birds with skyscrapers and airplanes. Her latest project is the sequel to her 2015’s Baroque paper wigs when she started her paper wig journey. “We then took our project even further and went on to create a series of miniature paper wigs in glass flasks, measuring about 30 cm.”
