Vasilissa Savrasova researches the bounds between form and matter that are always under transformation. Following Plato’s ideas she states that form is temporary while matter is eternal. Her videoart is full of light-shadow games, blinks on water, slides on surface. Plato said that our real world is the shadow of ideas while our art is a shadow’s shadow. Savrasova skips the material world and appeals to ideas giving them not physical but media form. It’s not a form mimesis, it’s matter mimesis on the misty audiovisual sensitive level of ideas and eternal matters. That eternal matter always avoids form for it’s stable and definite.
