Nastya Kuzmina (b.1989) is a multimedia artist who works with video art, performance, and video installation.

The focus of her interest is the dynamism of modern everyday life, irrepressible consumption, and the transformation of memory in the era of digital society. She explores the body's possibilities (also by means of dance) and is engaged in searching for and developing her own visual language. She creates projects in which she appeals

to viewers and their emotional experiences. 

 

Based and works in Paris
