A House of Skin

Felix Kalmenson

  • A House of Skin (Felix Kalmenson)


A House of Skin examines the role of apartment buildings as both witnesses and subjects of violence and trauma in the Soviet and post-Soviet Russian and Russian diaspora, seen as frameworks within which various narratives of struggle, migration and displacement play out.


Felix Kalmenson (Saint Petersburg, 1987) is a Toronto-based artist who creates installations, video, photography, performance and sound art.
