Olga Shurygina

Born in Russia, Olga is a multimedia artist creating her projects in Uzbekistan, her mother’s homeland. She graduated from the Moscow Art and Industry Institute in 2013. In her works, Olga uses a variety of media—from subject art, installations, and performance, to social research and cinema. She addresses the topic of her female gelealogy: both her grandmother and mother came from Uzbekistan. Olga treats the country as a timeless space, a portal where she finds answers to questions.
