A recent purchase and partial gift of the Alex Katz Foundation, Hannah Collins’ Beshencevo: A Current History is a highly evocative retelling of one day in the life of a family in a remote village in central Russia. Through a series of interwoven visual fragments including stark landscapes and contemplative domestic scenes, striking contrasts emerge between the realities of Post-Soviet life and the timeworn conventions of a traditional settlement.
