Veronika Georgieva was born & raised in Moscow/Russia and currently based in New York City. She holds master degree in Architecture from Moscow Architectural University (MARKHI). Her video installations & photographic works explore connection between present and absent, between what is visible and what hidden. By manipulating photographic material physically she reveals a new, often disturbing meaning within the Image itself and/or in relation to the way our memory works: with its’ fragmentation & thresholds between forgotten & brought back to life yet disfigured. Georgieva’s Paper Surgery Series is successfully exposed worldwide due to the collaboration with fashion label Comme des Garçons for their advertising campaign spring/summer 2010. As well as collaboration with Saatchi & Saatchi advertising agency for 25-anniversary campaign for Reporters Without Borders, which got short listed for Cannes Golden Lion. The artist exhibited throughout the world in numerous exhibitions, included Drawing Center/New York, MoMA/New York, Ljubljana Contemporary Art Museum, Exploratorium Museum of Art and Science/San-Francisco, Gogol Museum/Moscow, Berlin State Museum / Germany , Moscow Biennale, parallel program to 14th Venice Architectural Biennale, Arnhem Mode Biennale. Georgieva’s works is included in museum & private collections in America, Europe & Australia.
