Avoska is a portable art object, referring to times before plastic bags and original aesthetics of the Soviet life. Avoska was the main element of daily shopping – a universal bag of hard threads, which took little space and conveniently contained a large number of products. Avoska by Weld Queen made of metal is a specific monument to this invention, making it almost eternal. Symbolically returning to the times of our grandmothers, avoska absorbs all the cultural memory of the twentieth century. On the other hand, it is intended to carry a completely different content that is relevant to modern realities. The contents depends on the situation and the owner of an avoska. A performative accessory reflects the formula: “Tell me what’s in your avoska – and I’ll tell you who you are.”
