    Artist Statement

    Evgenia is a poet and artist. Sound, word, poetry, drawing are the primary elements of her current work. Through installations and performances Evgenia creates experiences, which invite the audience to question the boundaries of perception. Her visual artworks are most often created in a contemplative manner, to invite self-reflection.

     

    Evgenia’s sonic explorations are focused on working with voice as the primary tool. It is always accessible, always available to us - to reclaim voice as means of communicating beyond language, through more abstracted sound. At the same time Evgenia works with languages, drawing inspiration from possible hidden relationships and common roots between distant families. She often deconstructs language exploring underlying meaning through sonic means.

     

    A specific element of Evgenia’s work is audience participation. In some of her performances she challenges perception of humans as separate from each other, inviting her audience to become participants - into an immersive and often ritualistic space.  She removes the abyss between the figure of a professional musician and audience member, blurring and shifting these roles. When the stage is absent, experience requires presence and participation of everyone.

     

    She works as solo artist and runs a project Analema Group as Artistic Director.
