Dust by Xenia Nikolskaya

10 May-13 June 2012. This exhibition, entitled Dust: The Social Life of Endangered Spaces, displays a series of images by the Russian photographer Xenia Nikolskaya.

Her works explore Egypt's abandoned architectural heritage, such as many magical, yet abandoned buildings and places of decay and varnishing beauty, such as the Sarajeldin mansion. Nikolskaya, who studied Ancient Egyptian art, started her research in these places, looking for traces of the St-Petersburg of her early adulthood, but was soon drawn by their own stories.

In 2003 she visited Egypt for the first time within an archeological mission in Memphis, run by The Russian Egyptology Institute in Cairo. Since 2006 Nikolskaya has been constantly working around Egypt.
