Working with installation, performance and text, Katerina Sidorova looks at multiple facets of mortality and necropolitics in her practice. The artist works with the absurdity of mankind’s existence through its relationships with death, non-human species, and the coping mechanisms of reasoning. Researching societal hierarchies, mythologies, staging and performativity as a political strategy, Sidorova is interested in how mortality resonates in humans on every level; from domestic environments and personal stories to state-to-population power dynamics. In her works, sculptural meets theatrical: large immersive environments serve as a platform for performative actions, curation and experiment, with imperfection as method.
