Statement : 

I am an artist because I am insatiably curious.
Although at first glance eclectic, my pluridisciplinary work is always about the experience of being alive. It addresses both the public and the intimate, the human and the environment, as I believe the world is all about complex interrelations.
I use various media as tools : video, photography, drawing, installation, sound, performing arts, to create what I call sensitive documents.
As my early career was in acting, I use my theatre experience to work on community based, participatory projects, creating « theatrical objects » : a mix between theatre, dance theatre and visuals arts.
So far, all my community based projects, as well as my personal work, have been directly human-centered.
Today, parallel to these, I run a long term, large scale project called « Oblitération » which focuses on the ambivalence of the relationships between humans and the rest of the living. The project mainly involves multi media installation work, but also single pieces or photographic series. As part of my reseach, I am currently setting up an artist residency in Costa Rica, where I live part of the year, around « Reconsidering Nature and our relationship to the living - new paradigm(s) ? »

Hyper Landscape n°3
HYPERCOLLAGES, Prints or light box, 2021 90 x 60 cm All photographs used my own. This work is part of my generic and plurimedia project OBLITERATION that deals with the human ambivalence towards the rest of the living and the ecosystem at large. It is articulated around three moral and emotional positionings : The Celebration Cycle : the Romantic temptation (marvelling, fascination, call of the wild) The Ambivalence Cycle : our contradictory behaviours, consumming nature-like goods as a way to satisfy our need for wilderness The Angers Cycle : our deadly practices and the boomerang effect My Hyper Landscapes are part of the CELEBRATION CYCLE.

Bio: 

Born in France in an exiled Russian family, on grounds where history and History have met, the world has opened up to my eyes, ears and guts from the start.
I have lived in many places and different countries. My life and work are inseparable : I am a traveler, an explorer. In my childhood and teenage years, I competed in ice skating (Russian origins, you know...) and won a few national and international titles. Later I studied drama and became an actress both for television and theater. When I stopped, I went on to study Psychology and Screenwriting, at University College London, England. There I also directed my first and only fiction short movie 'First Lipstick". I then moved to Italy, where I started writing screenplays, researched and produced my first video work, "Inostranka", that took me to Russia. Back in France, and being a mom by then, I started self-training in the visual arts. I have been a professional pluridisciplinary artist since 2006. I now live between France and Costa Rica, where I am currently setting up an artist-run residency for international artists.
