My name is Aleksandra.
I was born in Crimea, Ukraine in 1984.
I live and work in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Currently in Paris, France.
My mediums are painting, performance, installation, video, literature and lots of mixed media.
In researching for identity, i reinterpret the different directions of the human being – from the corporeality and loneliness sharpened in it, to complex social structures that confuse the person interacting with them.
Usually with my works I research the boundaries: inner, outer, imposed or born under self-censorship. Their necessity, preparation or destruction. The possibility of their interrelations.
My works are the only way for me to communicate and interact honestly with the outside world and myself as well. It is a visual language, that gives me an opportunity to express what I want to say, what I’m afraid to say, but what I am still saying, regardless of whether my message reaches you in its original or modified form.
The goal of all my works is co-creation of author and viewer. That is why I always leave the vast field for interpretations for the viewer, because the moment of creation, the moment of art is for me somewhere between the piece and person’s glance.
