Pavel Romaniko Nostalgia Exhibition

For his project Nostalgia (2008-2010), Pavel Romaniko constructs miniature sets of building interiors using construction paper. Although reminiscent of domestic interiors Romaniko photographed in his previous series Russia (2005, 2007), and incorporating imagery from his series Still-Lifes (2007), most of Nostalgia’s carefully lit interiors are not alway specific to actual locations but instead become symbolic reflections on exile, blurred memory, and Romaniko’s longing for a relationship with his personal and cultural past. The empty, melancholic interiors are not only paper constructions, they are reconstructions created from Romaniko’s recollection of the past and found photographs. The nostalgia Romaniko feels for his personal past mirrors his native Russia’s attempts at reconciliation with its tumultuous history and its uneasy relationship with a rapidly changing present.
