Disciplines: Installatiekunstenaar, Mixed media/interdisciplinair kunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

Ola Vasiljeva works in various media, ranging from video to sculptural pieces, found and modified objects, printed matter and poetry. She often creates ambiguous, absurd, scattered installations and compositions, where the arrangement of the objects stages a choreographed dialogue between them. The installation often create an intermission or backstage atmosphere, where the space is populated with traces of a certain play and the air is pregnant with a certain mood, yet the act itself is not named and is out of focus. Over the past years Vasiljeva has been particularly interested in the nature of language- especially its opaque, meaningless and enigmatic nature. Here recent installations explore the relationship between thought, language, design and the production of an object. In 2008 Ola Vasiljeva founded The Oceans Academy of Arts (OAOA) , an umbrella group, which exists as an artist collective, a platform for ideas on art and education. OAOA creates, collects and shows art with an absence of any hierarchy between what constitutes an exhibition space, a work of art or the roles of those involved. In the recent years OAOA has been active in creating alternative educational programs.
