Biography / Anastasia Starikova

Anastasia Starikova was born in Riga, Latvia and is currently based in Birmingham, UK.  She mainly works with installations, photography and text that sometimes over spill into digital performances. Her practice comes from an interest in experimental and fringe archival practises and phenomenon of ‘the urge to collect’. She concentrates on the question of ‘how we construct narratives around objects?

Project discription:

In her work, Anastasia looks at home spaces, folklore and developed archival practices in relation to fictional, archival and in some cases digital matter that together can produce knowledge. For Urban Nation, Anastasia is creating a series of works based on routine ritualistic objects, collecting and homes of Berlin.
