The project pulls together staged scenes, film stills, and family pictures in an innovative and compelling hybrid of personal and documentary storytelling. In it, the artist grapples with the reality that her mother, seeking a better life for herself and her two young children, escaped Russia and came to America. Markosian’s family settled in Santa Barbara, a city made famous in Russia when the 1980s soap opera of that name became the first American television show broadcast there.
A solo exhibition of the same name will open at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in February 2021. The work will then be exhibited at the International Center of Photography in New York.
