PhD Candidate


I am a researcher, curator, and Ph.D. candidate at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. In 2018, I graduated with a joint master's degree in Media Arts Cultures, having written a thesis entitled, "When Species Meet in Bioart: Multispecies Encounters in BioArt from a Baradian, Post-humanist Perspective." My other master's degree is in Cultural Studies from the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. My working experience in art institutions includes occupations at V-A-C Foundation (Moscow) and the ZKM |Center for Art and Media (Karlsruhe).

I have curated or assisted in the curation/organization of several different art exhibitions. I co-curated the exhibition, "Here and Elsewhere," at the Kobro Gallery (The StrzemiƄski Academy of Art) in Lodz and the festival, "Seasons of Media Arts 2019," at the ZKM. I also assisted in curating the "Open Codes" exhibition, which was first shown at the ZKM and then at Chronus Art Center in Shanghai.

I have presented my research at a number of international conferences, including the Women Against Domination and Oppression Conference (Lodz, 2017), the 10th Beyond Humanism Conference (Poznan, 2018), the 3d Interdisciplinary Conference Taboo-Transgression-Transcendence in Art&Science (Mexico, 2018), the 8th International Conference on Media Art, Science, and Technology Re:Sound (Aalborg, 2019). Recently, I chaired a panel titled, "Interspecies Research and Becoming Animal," at Art Machines 2: An International Symposium on Machine Learning and Art (Hong Kong, 2021).
