Statement:

My work explores how culture, tradition, language, foreignness and sense of home shape and define our identity and how immigration, emigration and travel can either alter or illuminate that identity. Being raised within two cultures, Russian and American, informs my investigation of otherness and self from the standpoint of a foreigner and of a traveler.
My art is an intersection of video, performance, sculpture and installation. I shoot video both on location (in different parts of the world) and on sets that I build in the studio. I composite this video footage and integrate it into other objects to create video sculptures and installations. Also in my pallet of processes are photography, drawing and painting. I construct models and props that I photograph against real scenery to create images that depict a constructed reality. In my drawings and paintings, I merge architecture from around the world into composite landscapes. These methods of layering materials and processes reinforce my concepts by fusing specific sites and situations into unexpected combinations. In this way, I aim to explore and diminish the gap between different cultural realities.
My work challenges viewers to question their own cultural identity and sense of place and to investigate how and to what degree they are a product of their emotional, physical and cultural “baggage.”
