An idiosyncratic specimen of globalization, I was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, my father - North Korean and my mother - Russian. Having caught a glimpse of the USSR, I have a nostalgic, conflicting perception of cultural systems. Unable to assimilate into any culture, I am an outsider with an eclectic taste. Art represents the act of seeking, assembling and immortalizing beauty. I recreate the state of freedom, experienced in childhood. My works strive to capture the ephemeral. My points of creative interest include surveillance, utopia and eroticism. I have exhibited at Whitechapel Gallery and ICA in London amongst other prestigious international establishments including the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles and the Untitled Space in New York.
