Nicholas Muellner - Fate Shifts Shapes


Fate Shifts Shapes folds the viewer into a darkly obscure, emotionally charged encounter with contemporary Russian experience. This catalog-as-artist’s book adapts works by Nicholas MuellnerAnzhelina PolonskayaSasha Rudensky and Clemens von Wedemeyer into a fluid sequence of images and poems that obscure and reveal one another. Collectively, they dramatize the ways some vulnerable individuals – particularly women, gay men and economic migrants – must shape their identities around the inexorable social and cultural forces of a conservative society.
