1987 · Russian Federation
Taking large-scale sculptural installations to new levels of artistic investigation, Russian artist Nika Neelova explores the ways in which the role of sculpture has evolved over time.
Considering a wide range of sculptural forms, Neelova removes objects from any functional connotation and embraces the purity of their shape and interaction with other entities. By stripping away any such interpretation, Neelova frees the viewer of these works to explore and experience these forms anew in their own time and space.
Born in 1987, Neelova earned a BA from the Royal Art Academy of The Hague in 2008 and subsequently achieved an MA in Fine Art Sculpture from the Slade School of Art in London in 2011. Neelova has enjoyed ample exhibition opportunities; recent solo showcases of Neelova’s work include “drifts (there is always ground, even at night)” at MFL Brussels (2018); “Glyphs” at Noire Gallery in Turin (2019); and “Ever” at The Tetley in Leeds (2019).
