Born and raised in Russia, I hold a BA and MA from Smolny College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in St. Petersburg with a major in Contemporary Art and Film Criticism. As a video artist and curator, I constantly navigated the borders between the digital and the analogue, cultural identity and colonial history, personal narratives and collective memory. For several years, I’ve been working as a Film festival curator and manager in Saint Petersburg
Currently, I am a PhD student in Film Studies at Concordia. My research is focused on undergoing processes and changes occurred in the post-socialist societies and cultures before and after 1989. My project is dealing with the post-conflict situation and decontamination of the cultural environment in Balkan region during the collapse of the USSR.
