Nika Kupyrova

Nika Kupyrova (1985 in Kyiv, Ukraine) grew up in Prague, studied Painting at the Edinburgh College of Art, Fine Arts at the Iceland University of the Arts and Transdisciplinary Art at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. She is currently living and working in Vienna and Prague. Nika Kupyrova uses exhibition spaces as stages for her experiments in narration. Within her practice that appropriates everyday objects, literature and pop culture phenomena, the artist proposes bridges between textual and visual languages where you don’t expect to find them, seeking analogies between sculptural positioning and sentence construction. Kupyrova’s multi-layered installations blur the borders between objects that are made, found or altered, leaving ample space for interpretation and exploring three-dimensionality in post-digital age.
