In collaboration with actress Victoria Koblenko, Alice created an art project which explores stereotypes about Russian Women. The association that often comes to mind while thinking of Russian women is quiet obvious, the mail-order bride. In Russian Women Wielinga explores other ways women have been viewed throughout Russian history. Studying Russian art reveals other stereotypes of women. In three diptychs Alice showed how opposite female images, might have more in common then we might think at first sight.
