Rocaille's series of works were originally motivated by formal searches. I wanted to create some modern landscapes that had a clear reference to the classic French landscape from the time of Antoine Watteau. Hence, the name Rocaille is an appeal to the early 18th century and its aesthetics. Most of the works feature, in one way or another, the shape of an oval. In fact, it is a circle, but more aestheticized and refined. The oval works with a torn canvas body are more conceptual. They talk about the inextricable connection to classical art and about the death of it as a medium in our era. Other works, where a small oval landscape is depicted against an even blue background, have a more existential content. These works are about the limited capacity of humans to perceive this world, about the fact that the unknown and inconceivable (blue background) does remain outside the boundaries of our perception. Also, in Rocaille there is a third type of work: simpler landscapes that combine a modern approach to landscape and a reference to the classical tradition of this genre.

Fedora Akimova is a mixed-media artist specializing in installations, video and objects. She was born in 1987 in Kyiv, where, after receiving her first degree in Printing and graphics, she began her creative career as an illustrator. In 2010 she moved to Russia – first to Kaliningrad, then to St. Petersburg, where she studied decoration and staging. This diploma in Theater Decoration and Stage design has impacted and developed her as a future artist, as she picked up many techniques and crafts into her art. From 2017 to March 2022 Fedora resided and practiced in Moscow, and had multiple exhibitions in private galleries and large institutions including: Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (2021), MMOMA Moscow (2021), Cosmoscow Contemporary Art Fair (2018, 2021) and others.
