Antonina Slobodchikova was born in Minsk, Belarus. She works in a variety of media, including spatial installation, video, ready-mades and objects. Using materials from everyday life, she explores the themes of death, memory, and the representation of female experience. She has taken part in many exhibition projects in Belarus, Lithuania, Poland and Germany.
Antonina was especially interested in exploring the historical context of the city of Bukhara, the influence of the geographical and political context on art, meetings and exchange of experience with colleagues from other countries and the art community. She planned to create an installation based on her experience in the residence.
