Multimedia artist born in St. Petersburg (Russia). From her early childhood Natalia was passionate about painting, sculpture and photography. Later on, she developed a strong interest in science and got her Ph.D. in Neurolinguistics on the subject of Brain Asymmetry and Speech Processing. Several years of a scientific career were not, however, a hindrance to her artistic development as she continued to experiment with photography and got involved in video art. Since 2000 Nataliya devotes her full-time attention to photography, vidéo-art, short films & videoinstallations, working in Paris, Stockholm, Istanbul, Milano, Rome, New York, London. She took part in many artshows and festivals. Her works can be found in private and public collections, including Russian Museum. Influenced by her former scientific research, she invites us to discover the magic dimensions, abstractions, hidden in the simple objects, as seen through the lens of a microscope, the prism of binoculars, a périscope or a kaléidoscope. Her creations, with a use plexiglass, aluminium, video or videoinstallation are invitations to discover our daily life objects or situations with aesthetic, innovative and perplexing treatment.
She currently lives and works in Paris.
