'SIAMESE TWINS'

The idea for this project was inspired by the book about famous conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker who were born in Siam (now Thailand) in 1811.

MULTIPLICITY OF SELF

In the "Siamese Twins" project, I explore the transformation of physicality of the objects as a metaphor for the merging of past and present "I". This collision represents references to past selves, memory fragments, and digital identities inseparable from corporeality of the present.

 

The struggle to separate from persistent thoughts and inner facets leads to discomfort, necessitating adjustment, compromise, and coexistence.

My work delves into the experience of lacking privacy from one's own dual nature, examining the tension and symbiosis between them.

ABOUT YULIA BAS

Yulia Bas currently resides in Barcelona. Originally born into a Jewish family in Moscow, she first moved to Italy and then to Spain. Pursuing fine art studies from an early age, she later earned her architecture diploma and spent a decade working in design before reigniting her passion for art seven years ago.

 

Her multicultural background and immigrant story deeply inform her work, reflecting her perception of fragmented identity and the pursuit of subjective wholeness. Through paintings, sculptures, installations, and performances, Yulia's art explores the multiplicity of self, personal boundaries, and the body as a somatic memory tool.

 

Guided by her personal journey of healing through body therapy and meditation, Yulia's work delves into the intricate struggle of self-perception in today's world.
