Anastasia Bogomolova — CV. Anastasia Bogomolova | Artist


Anastasia Bogomolova is an artist and researcher. They work with performative practices documenting the process in the installations, photography, sculptures, video, sound, and text. In their projects, Anastasia turns to the imitation of everyday rituals and studies mimicry as a theme, method and visual language. Their research also focuses on the flexible nature of memory, on difficult heritage, as well as on the depiction of traces. The attention to the image of trace comes from their fascination with events that may be preserved in conditional outlines or are not seen as events anymore.

They live and work in Yekaterinburg, Ural, Russia.
