Anna Khodorkovskaya

b. 1985 in Moscow, Russia

Lives and works in Vienna, Austria


Anna Khodorkovskaya (born 1985) lives and works in Vienna. Her works create a new visual territory generated by the tension between life and art. Elements from everyday visual culture are appropriated, remixed and transformed into a personal reflection about society and its own informational rhythm. Advertising, cooking, toys or mass-media-industry elements are overlapping while producing in real time an already nostalgic and obsolete aesthetic that the artist uses in her paintings, installations and performances.
