Paul Carey-Kent , writer / curator: "Albina Mokhryakova: ‘Maybe Therapy?’ 2020. Young Russian artist @albiutopist 's performatively-based practice has included crawling round an art fair, tennis actions without balls and the aestheticisation of bruises. ‘Maybe Therapy?’ arises from a performance (Image 2) which criticised pharmacological treatments for depression by proposing that the best use of such pills was to lay them out into a beautiful pattern as part of a more spiritually-based approach. Here the pattern makes a mask of sorts, evidently ineffective in a Covid-19 context (perhaps there’s a comment in that on the Russian response to the crisis) but alluding to the potential for lockdown regimes to increase mental health problems. Mokhryakova is one of 100 artists in isolation chosen by 23 curators round the world to make ‘Viral Self-Portraits’ for an exceptionally well-presented online exhibition @mgplusmsum in Ljubljana"
