hemel boven rusland





I was born on May 19, Moscow, 1970. At the time of the big national changes I finished my high school. The perestroika started. The Iron Curtain raised and Moscow was flooded with new ideas and new forms of art. The cinematography was the most popular art vorm. In 1997, I moved to Amsterdam and studied at the Theatrical decoration department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy from 1999 to 2004. It was during my studies I start it my own video project. The video installation as a particular genre and the video projections as an extra tool for theatre attracted me a lot and encouraged me to take some experiments. In my video displays I am trying to catch the finest facets between an illusion and a reality, where the special effects play an important role, in an unobtrusive way. Apart from this, I create object with materials such as porcelain, wood, cloth and glass.
