From Ljubljana by buss to Venice, from Venice to Rome with train and from Rome to Gothenburg by plane and finally dispersed in the mail system to a wide variety of addresses. Robertinas jellyfish have travelled long distant without touching water.
Jellyfish have inhabited the seas and oceans for over 500 million years. They are the perfect evolutional archive and in the Anthropocene epoch that we are in, they might give us a clue on what moves we need to make for the future.
A jellyfish consist of 95-99% water and water is what Robertinas jellyfish are reacting on. The link that shall complete the circuit so the lamp shines and sound is produced is our fingers. Fingers are a bit moist as they belong to a body that contains 55-75% of water.

At the same time as Anastasia partook in a residency in Skövde the Swedish military was hunting unidentified naval vessels in the archipelago of Stockholm. To her it came quite unexpectedly that she, an artist in the middle of Västergötaslätten would feel unease when someone asked where she was from. Perhaps she was a real spy? The work Anastasia has made is a postcard with a personal greeting to an unknown receiver.
During the autumn of 2014 Anastasia partook in a residency at Skövde Konsthall. The art institution runs AiR Skövde, a project initiated by Västra Götalandsregionen with the aim of creating meeting pots for international and local artists throughout the region. Anastasias work is a result of a collaboration between Skövde Konsthall and BILAGA.
