Russian artist Olga Chernysheva is in conversation with curator Anders Kreuger ahead of her forthcoming exhibition Keeping Sight, MuHKA, Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp (October 2014 - January 2015).
A leading artist in the generation that emerged in Moscow in the 1990s, Chernysheva continues a long-standing Russian tradition of social realism, creating works that draw on a close observation of the reality around her. In her multi-disciplinary practice, she uses film, photography, painting and object-based mediums to explore the fragmentation of narratives in contemporary Russian life and culture.
Olga Chernysheva (b.1962, Moscow) holds a BA from the Russian State University of Cinematography, Moscow (1986) and graduated from the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam (1996). Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, including the New Museum and The Guggenheim, New York, the Moscow Biennale (2009) and Venice Biennale (2001). International solo shows include Compossibilities, Kunsthalle Erfurt, Germany (2013), Olga Chernysheva, Foxy Production, New York (2011), Clippings, Galerie Volker Diehl, Berlin (2011) and Olga Chernysheva, Calvert 22, London (2010).
Anders Kreuger is a curator, writer and lecturer. He has independently organised numerous exhibitions across Europe while also acting as curator in various institutions such as Lunds Konsthall, Sweden. He is one of the editors of the London-based art journal Afterall and has taught at several European art academies, including the Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, the Royal Danish Academy of Art, Copenhagen and the Royal College of Art, London.
