“My goal is to create images of performances that make people live in front of the camera in a more intense way than how they live in their everyday lives. In this sense, my staged photography is a counter-staged photography. And that is why my images are not simply movie stills, which are the artificial and mannerist cuts from externalized action. I define my style as theatre of absurd documented by photographic means. The project “A New History of Ideas in Pictures” includes works done in the studio in the form of absurd performances. Each image is a part of a set of images (usually 3 to 5), which represents the entire continuous performance.” - Irene Caesar

Irene Caesar was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1963. She received her education as an artist in the Peterhof Art School, class of Mark Tumin, who transferred to her the legacy of Russian constructivism of the 1920s, surviving only via the oral tradition in word of mouth from a teacher to pupil under the strict veto of communists. The message was to look for the meaningfulness of abstraction or for the constructivist foundations of the meaning. In this tradition, art was necessarily conceptual, and philosophy and art were inseparable. Irene Caesar received her BA in philosophy from St. Petersburg University, Russia in 1985. After 10 years as an artist in Russia, she emigrated to the US in 1994.
