“I’m not interested in the political side of it at all. I don’t deny it and know it filters into the work, but I’m not approaching it from that perspective. I’m interested in exploring inner exile and profound beauty as redemptive and liberating. There is that famous Dostoyevsky quote that ‘Beauty will redeem the world.’”—Anna Shteynshleyger
