In Sotnikovas, photographs, the current recipient of the BEST Art Prize establishes pictorial worlds that oscillate between seemingly surreal mise en scènes and situations of everyday life, which appear lapidary but are sharply observed. An element of the grotesque pervades her work that often ironically points to the orders of nature-historical scientific knowledge. One may surmise a utopia, the implementation of which was renounced. However, the photographs by Sotnikova reveal a sensitivity that functions beyond the constantly affirmative perfectionism, thus creating their very own magic.

Sotnikovas original photographic approach enables the artist to transform her subjects into a micro-rhythm of exhilarating single shots. The glitch, or disruption of events, plays an important role as does evolution, the perpetual change and modification of living organisms. The transformation and shift in semantic significance of the individual motifs is represented in a very subtle way.

According to Sotnikova, visual communication relies on an analytical approach to archerypes. The sculpture of a young female dancer in Kapustin Yar Pioner has an irritating effect on viewers, because the depicted environment seems unusual and unsuitable. The title of the work underlines this transposition, as it refers to a military artillery firing range inolgograd, thus forming a contrast to the dancers graceful and innocent figure.
