Anna Choutova – MA/MFA

I’m a visual artist and curator working and studying in London. I’m also the founder and director of curatorial project, Bad Art Presents. My practice is best described as browse in the forgotten section of a duty-free store. I’m fascinated by the things we consume in an effort to alter our identity, especially things that feel so good but can hurt so bad, like cigarettes, chocolate or overpriced Bottega Venetta boots. As a post-soviet girl, the culture I was born into both fetishises and demonises American consumer culture. My practice reflects this duality and comments on the push-pull of East and West that exists within me. I’ve wedged myself between Malevich and McCarthy and I am on a mission to marry destitute bleakness with inconceivable excess in my own practice.
