Being of transnational background (born in Russia, based in the UK and earlier in Luxembourg, USA and Belgium) I explore how the issues of the particular and universal are re-negotiated in the context of ambivalent (non) belonging by humanity in crises, mediated by technology.
I am interested in transnational (mis)communication and the fictive and fictional collectiveness it creates. I have come to understanding of any culture-related misfit in temporal terms.
My work is hybrid and experimental, and involves words writing, coding and working with Arduino, 3D visualisations, immersive environments, moving image, sculpture, sound and performance. The work oscillates between personal and collective, closed and open-ended, conscious and subconscious, crosses the borders of all media and carries characteristics attributed to transnational art: multiplicity, liminality and hybridity.
