Artist and Curator of Contemporary Art

Curriculum Vitae

I was born in 1996 in Karelia and currently live in Moscow. In my artistic practice, I create interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of contemporary art and philosophy, using philosophical optics as a method. More about my method in my artist’s statement.
