The Red Woman
In 2008 Yelena was triggered by the prevalence of terrorists in the news and connected it to the paranoia about werewolves in the middle ages. She was fascinated by the overlapping theme of violent outburst. This inspired a collection of clothes that was in turn presented to the world through performances and pop-up shops. In 2018 Yelena's performance terrorist treatment was selected for an exhibition in the USA. A passion for this topic reignited and transformed into a new series of performances. Yelena's fashion design is now substituted with an alternative outfit. In this way Yelena abstracts herself from her previous work. The focus now lies on concept and action, sharpening the edges of her performances.
