Alena Tereshko

My art practice is quite diverse, as I work with performance art, video, and graphics. Often, in my artistic research I focus on a body and its representation. I am particularly interested in the intertwinement of contemporaneity and tradition, in the relation between images and perception and generally, in opposite categories and their points of contact. I was born in 1986 in the city of Ishim, Tyumen region. Lived in Chelyabinsk and now I am based in St. Petersburg and Helsinki. I studied Monumental Art at The Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design and at the "School for Young Artists" programme of The Pro Arte Foundation. I am the winner of the Sergey Kuryokhin Prize (2017) in "The Best Media Object" category. I participated in numerous exhibitions in Russia and abroad. My the most famous works are performance based, they were showed widely, for example, I participated twice in Oberhausen Short Film Festival.
