Artist statement

My primary artistic focus is on large-scale paintings, videos and installations which refer to personal and collective memory, feature historical obscurities, and unfold in both lyrical and conceptual ways. I address the precarity of memory and its elusiveness that serves as a springboard of paradox and slippage between fiction and reality. I am interested in the narrative where document and artistic imagination overlap.

Another facet of my practice is socially engaged art. I have collaborated with inhabitants of several retirement houses in different regions in Russia. Coming together while running workshops, we apply various media (video, photography, watercolor painting) to participate in a collective visual art production and claim one’s own voice to criticize or participate in the canon.
