CULTURE SHOCK REMEDIES
13 September to 5 October 2019
Katia Silkova was born in Russia, raised in Ukraine and migrated to Melbourne with her family in 1996. Katia's art practice spans across painting, photography, sculpture and site-specific installation, engaging with notions of time, place and cultural identity.
In Culture Shock Remedies, I will further investigate the influences of my cross-cultural experiences on my changing place making practices. I will use The Cupboard space as an essential aspect for a site-specific installation, which will indicate an emerging sense of place and belonging influenced by merging cultures and environments.
