Participant Profile

Anna Scherbyna


Artist and cultural activist Anna Scherbyna sees art as a field for experimentation with forms and testing alternative worlds. Her artistic practice draws on the current socio-political situation and examines the political potential of media such as installation and video, drawing and painting. Her work covers a wide range of topics and questions such as landscape and its political charge, the perception of an image in cultural and political contexts, relations between a work of art and the viewer, object-subject relationships, gender performativity and violence.

Anna is engaged in numerous collaborative projects and her curatorial practice is centered on the formation of a community. For her residency in the US she intends to extend her practical implementation of a feminist approach towards building an artistic community. Having explored different forms of co-working and co-being together, Anna dreams about a feminist art institution holding feminism as its core principle.
