Nastya Nikolskaya is an interdisciplinary artist who currently lives and works in London.
Nikolskaya uses media theory to study how we are shaped by our environments and the technology we have access to. Born in Russia and with an undergraduate degree in Social Anthropology, they often look at the mechanisms of oppression on both a local and global perspective. They often work collaboratively, having been part of KY16 (with Lena Fadeeva), Hypothermia HQ (with Alex Fleming, Francisco Ortega and Clarinda Tse) and Agony Press (with Miranda Stuart). They are currently working on a video essay with Fabula Gallery, Moscow, about interspecies feminism and meme culture.
