Alina Zhdanova​ - Statement


Born in Moscow, Russia, raised in Japan. Video artist, visual artist, graphic designer. Interested in the theme of memory and my work organized by elements of my experience and memorization. Making a mixed-media animation such using various materials and techniques, making an abstract painting.

My study theme is a visualizing of oblivion. In the process of oblivion, memory is formed by an adoption or rejection of brain storage. Oblivion is breaking of memory and it builds the process of identity. The unnecessary information is cut off when memory is stored. So the question arises: if the stored memory forms an identity, is it possible to make another identity king of stacked information that has been forgotten? I’d like to consider and express it from my artist position.
