An open book
Yelena has spent years working on her new book MABEL BETTY AND BETTE, which has just been published by Kominek. MABEL BETTY AND BETTE is a multi-media project including photos, collage and film stills created by the artist.
The imagery focuses on questions of identity and the strangeness of time passing, building a fictional narrative about the loss of self that breaches the thin wall between dreams and reality. Collage has come much more to the fore for Yelena as the pandemic restricted her ability to go out on photographic shoots, and some of the results make up a sizeable part of the content of this book.
It’s available to order, both in a signed and numbered standard edition, and as a special edition, with a signed, numbered archival ink-printed collage included.
