I inhabit memories and voices, found and inherited (notably my nan, rotting compost, an IKEA catalog & Flashbacks of U) to make vivid and sometimes visible a world already felt, yet uncertain. Working primarily with post-Soviet life-writing and auto-fiction, I collect, translate and re-imagine personal shadows, seeing voice as a vessel for human stories. Writing shapes and expands my practice, translating into film, curation, photography and design.
I graduated from BFA Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford in 2017, and was selected for BBH's Homegrown post-graduate internship in 2018.
