Shuzbekistan (Shurygina+Uzbekistan) is a series of photographs and ceramic objects the contours of which repeat the original Soviet ceramic plates. The photos Olga took during her first trip to her grandmother in Uzbekistan depict Uzbek women and local life. Olga addressed the connection with her grandmother and mother, the traditional female symbols and the role of women in modern society through the lifestyle and profession of her grandmother Olga, who worked all her life as the main fabric artist at the silk factory in Margilan, Uzbekistan. It was based on female concepts common to both Russia and Uzbekistan, such as traditionally female craft and traditional female symbols.
