This small town symbolized the archetype of pastoral American life. Yet this idyllic place was also held hostage by a dark past, manifesting in the racial tensions that scar much of American history.
Anastasia’s work is inspired by the idea of construction and its deconstruction and the countervailing forces released due to and as well before, during and after the process.
For several years, she has developed an artistic practice, in which the different mediums of sculpture, performance, ink drawing and sound interweave in the creation of a wordless language, indicative of our chaotic universe.
Her works have been shown in in numerous international art museums and galleries such as Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Marta Herford, Herford, Neues Museum, Nuremberg and Serralves Museum, Porto. In 2015 she was the winner of the Faber Castell International Drawing Award and in 2012 she was the recipient of the ISCP residency in NYC. Her sound collaborations with other artists includes Lasse Marhaug, C spencer Yeh and Lars Siltberg.
