"... Kisina's images are rather hauntingly
On the one hand they seem to engage with a
general human theme of memory - how blurred and selective it
is and the ambivalent nuances of nostalgia that go with it. ...
On the other hand they seem to refer to the
post Soviet context and issues of lost/disrupted cultural identity,
cultural displacement and a different yet equally ambivalent nostalgia for
the certainties of the past."
