Growing up in post-Soviet Moscow, I witnessed a dramatic transformation of Russian life and culture. People were thrust into a new, unknown, capitalistic model. These societal changes moved me to explore in greater depth an individual’s path to self-recognition and rediscovery. With the use of metaphorical settings, objects and characters, I create my own mythology inspired by history, a rise and fall of power structures, and conflicting intricacy of human existence in the world. I’m interested in places of uncertainty, places in-between cultures, stability and identity. My art practice today is a compilation of methods: I work with different media ranging from traditional drawing and sculpture to installation, object making, video, animation and digital media art.
