Kristina Syrchikova (b.1992) is a visual artist working with photography, installation and participatory practices.
"My artistic practice is based on documentary photography, I believe that reality is more creative than any fiction. I develop Diane Arbus’s method of ‘scrutiny' in everyday life, but in contemporary context. I make images that create personal narrative of ordinary people from Russian regions. I am especially interested in such human issues as family memories, separation, religion, pain, acceptance and non-acceptance of fate".
