Originally from Arles, France, Anastasia is an artist and researcher living and working between London and Paris.
During her studies at the RCA, she has developed a critical and research-based practice, focusing on sharing questions about identity and socio-political issues. Her work aims to talk about the relationship between art, culture, human rights, environment and education in order to encourage people to develop their political awareness. She is a researcher, often using archives, materiality and emotions to open up difficult conversations between people.
She is currently part of the programme ‘Passerelles’ run by the French Association Contemporaines (@contemporaines) whose aim is to allow young artists to be put in touch with established artists in support of their early career.
Before her MA(RCA) in Visual Communication, Anastasia completed an MA with Distinction in Graphic Design and Artistic Direction (2018), and a BA in Graphic Design and Printed Media (2015) at École de Condé, Paris.
She has worked as Assistant to the Art Director at VEJA, Paris (2019) and had 'You are Welcome' — her diploma project questioning the way we welcome migrants in France — published in Étapes magazine No.52.
