Hello!

 

I am a multidisciplinary artist, curator and researcher currently based in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I work with different mediums, ranging from videos, poems, painting, and installations to social and curatorial projects where non-art analytic methods are combined with traditional art practice.  

The main interests of my projects are the states of instability and fluidity with their paradox of staying and moving at the same time. I explore them on the questions of memory, identity, personal and political borders and art definitions themselves.

One of the main topics of my researches is changing space and time of art from the perspective of "exhibition", that I define as a sign and a process. My curatorial projects exist in the form of nomadic practices or online platforms, and aim to take shape of streams and points convenient for multimedia and gray zones in the middle of private and public space where we all live now. 

 Other topics of my art projects are determined by processes and changing trails of time, history, memory, identity and structures of feelings. I try to define them by examining themes of post-soviet, traumas, militarism, mass media, propaganda, collective memory using personal reflections, affective domains and analytic methods.
