The facts of my biography (frequent change of residence, loss of connection with a particular territory and roots) influenced a lot on the formation of my art practice and the theme of my projects. Studying the identity through the reconstruction, appropriation and performative practices, I try to reach the self-identification and understand what it means to be a Russian or someone else. In my projects, I rely on the idea of the return of society to the origins, the general concepts, in an attempt to understand for myself what is really important in defining oneself, one's identity and belonging to a social and cultural community.
