Since childhood I have always had a creative and eccentric personality, with a very marked sensitivity. This allowed me to recognize my potential very early and to understand that I want to pursue an artistic career in my life.

To accomplish my dreams, I enrolled in an art school, where I earned a diploma in fashion design. Later I studied visual arts and I graduated in photography at IED in Turin with honors.

My school path allowed me to acquire knowledge in the intellectual field and technical skills, but what I consider really impactful are my passions, such as playing the piano, guitar, painting, dancing and studying theater and literature. They significantly affect my vision of the world and my work.

Photography, specifically self-portrait, is my main medium of expression and my images are colorful, intriguing, enigmatic and very often ironic. From a theoretical-conceptual point of view, these are strongly contaminated by my literary, artistic and philosophical interests; as for the aesthetics, my visual contents are often at the border between different discipline: a photograph and an illustration or a pictorial work.

Multidisciplinary is a key word in my art projects, since I combine several means of expression such as photography, art, fashion and theatrical performance. All together these mediums allow me to investigate current or shared themes in a creative and unique way.

  • Zhanna Kadyrova: Border Memory
    Feb 17 – May 5, 2024
    Uppsala Art Museum
    Uppsala, Sweden
    Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova lets urban materials such as asphalt, concrete and tiles bear witness to history’s many layers of rearrangements, visions and shattered dreams. The artist works in a post-minimalist tradition, and the spatial installations refer both to utopian movements and to how abstraction in art is linked to the modern project. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022, Kadyrova’s art has focused entirely on psychological and sociological aspects of the war. (more…)
