“There is no single permanent history or memory. ‘Making history’, we must be aware that our understanding of the past is necessarily limited to our being in the present. Moreover, the world which we live in is the direct legacy of the people and actions of the past; so, how we understand the past is inextricably linked to the events of the past periods – this is the essential relevance of history. The past is evident everywhere and right now, regardless of the form. What can a rolled-up hose tell us? We do not know yet, but probably something very important.”
The artist works with the mediums of installation, sculpture, photography, painting. In her artistic practices, Katya is increasingly turning to her own sensory experience to distil new knowledge about reality and herself from it.
