Originally hailing from the picturesque region of Baikal, artist Elena Anosova (born in 1983) is currently based in Moscow and Irkutsk.
Anosova’s work is centered around the lives of women in closed institutions. The impulse of research of such communities arose in a reflection of her teenage period spent at the closed rehabilitation boarding school. She would like to take a closer look at the dynamic interplay between processes of isolation and surveillance as well as at the unique qualities of emotional and social relationships within restrictions of artificially insulated societies.
Elena Anosova also works with subjects of borders, identity and collective memory in the territory of Siberia and Russian Far East.
