RED ROOM: Uliana Apatina
24 January - 9 February 2014
RED ROOM, a site-specific installation embracing memory, remembrance and the seductive power of red, by the artist Uliana Apatina.
With a complex background in both academic and contemporary media art, architecture and writing, Uliana Apatina crosses the borders of the mediums and disciplines by creating immersive environments questioning our perception of space, time and reality.
The artist attacks a site directly by developing the idea in the process of construction. This intuitive and immediate approach inevitably dissolves the figure of the creator in a creative process. Literally inhabiting a chosen site, Uliana builds the whole construction to intellectually stimulate the mind while physically disorienting the body.
Born in Siberia Uliana Apatina moved to London on receiving a Scholarship at the Architectural Association School of Architecture where during her tenure she was also granted the Boas Award for the Residency at the British School in Rome. Apatina's recent site-specific artworks are spread throughout London including ‘Staircase’ at Chisenhale Art Place and ‘That Side Where Real Is’, nine installations in the Crypt@St Marks Church, Oval.
Uliana Apatina lives and works in London.
