Artist Statement
The main focus of her interest is communication and language: the varieties of its substance, the possibility of conversion, its mythological aspect, stereotyping (the question of personal and political self-identification and identification by others), problems of memory, attitudes, and reliance. Coming a long way from political and cultural journalism, through organizing and curating cultural and art events, Ksenia settled in individual artistic and research practice, which allows the useful critical distance for observation and working with contemporary issues. Her approach is based on methods of language appropriation, over-affirmation, self-reflection and self-criticism through ironic component inevitably added to the most serious matters. Ksenia Yurkova has taken part in numerous shows and festivals worldwide, has released several artist books. Her works are in private collections in Russia, Germany, France and Finland.
