Alexander Dedov's series of works "SELF" is dedicated to the processes of human self-identification. Externally the sculptures are united by recurring elements of the marine environment. The artist is connected with this element by his origin: Dedov refers himself to the ethnographic group of the Pomors, which is located in the northern part of Russia on the coast of the White Sea. The Pomors are a people who have been associated with fishing for centuries.
The artist portrays the relationship of the people with the geography of natural sources on a metaphysical level. He embodies images of silent underwater creatures, which have a sacred meaning for man and are closely intertwined with his thinking and perception of the world.
Through symbolic images, close to the spirit of Dedov, the sculptor reveals the factors of psychological formation of personality: internal reflection, the search for identity, as well as the relationship of man with nature and himself.
