Once post-modern human raised the slogan on its shield - "anything goes". Anything is possible, and anything can combine with anything. As a result of mass disappointment in the world of achievements of Modern, after millions of deaths and not very comforting results of the first half of XX century for humanity - something new appeared. A large number of intellectuals have declared a new era - and even more so, its salvation necessity for mankind.
By the beginning of the 21st century, the transformation of postmodern civilization was not complete, but only claimed its rights in all spheres of life, especially in modern culture. At this stage of reflection on the mosaic and contradictory space of modernity, the author sees collage as one of the most suitable artistic techniques for reflexive reflection on the developing postmodern world. Multilayered and multiple connotations are a feature of contemporary perception, and the two works presented are the author's imagination in the context of the main properties of such a cultural phenomenon as postmodern in the world of the post-modern man.
