Mira Alibek and the feeling of lost innocence

Mira Alibek's work reminds me of lost dreams and innocence adults experience and her work is almost a nostalgic sketchbook of such ideas. Especially her "Fble" installation of frozen, torn yet still inflated balloons, collages of the childhood Little Red Riding Hood, which have been altered to suit her own narration of a world perhaps not so different from the fable. The idea of past heroes/idles/ideals and the ones we wanted to be as children and the ones we still pursue with subconscious drift, inspire my thoughts of her work. Her work is playful, powerful, inspiring, and interesting. There is a narration for us to solve or create and she allows the audience to pick their path through beautiful visual influence.
