Dezember 2022 - Jänner 2023

born in 1989 (Belarus). Currently lives in Berlin, Germany

My artistic practice includes sculpture, installations, and archival work. The common thread of my art is collective memory; it draws from the history we all share and our everyday experiences. I preserve, analyze and explore collective memory through research-based work that frequently includes collecting community archives to examine memories from the Soviet past and those of today, reflecting on the pressing social issues and processing political trauma.
