Visual artist (B. 1983), Minsk, Belarus. Currently working on long-term projects in documentary and conceptual photography also experimenting with video art and multimedia projects.

I live in Belarus, a country whose statehood has been based on fear and shame for the past 26 years. I was born in a completely different place, a country that was falling apart, discovering the unexpected and the new everywhere. And yet, the limitations appeared gradually, one by one, slowly and quietly, so that they seemed logical to us or not important. Now, looking around, it seems to us that this is the norm.

The very basis of my projects is fear and a desire to understand the impact of the system on a person. I choose something that is difficult for me to accept or understand and take it apart to see how it works inside and what kind of force makes these parts work together.
