Bio

Anna Mirkin is a multidisciplinary artist born in Moscow (1983), currently living and working in Berlin and Tel-Aviv. Her work involves the use of drawing and painting as sculptures and installations through duplication and repetition of patterns. She merges different disciplines and mediums in her practice, combining textile, print and embroidery with participatory and community-based projects. Her work explores the collective sub consciousness that appears in everyday situations and cultural rituals.  

Her work was exhibited in Tel-Aviv, Vienna, New York, and Beijing - representing the Israeli embassy at Art Beijing. She had solo shows in: Haifa Museum of art, Be'eri Gallery, STA art gallery in Tel-Aviv. Her work was exhibited in Helen Rubinstein pavilion of contemporary art, Tel-Aviv Museum.

Artist statement

In the past two years I am working with a technique turning drawings into three dimensional objects and sculptures. Through a proses of drawing – multiplying into a kaleidoscopic repeating pattern – and reprinting on paper or textile. The pattern is used to cover objects unifying them into sculptures and installations. The themes I explore through this work are social constructs and cultural conditioning in different groups, as opposed to psychological archetypes that are in the base of the human existence – the collective subconsciousness. Always looking for extremes and abnormalities, in which the greater base of the human experience shines through. The topic being addressed in my resent work is the virtual space and digital communication, as a mirror of our collective mind.
