Lilia Luganskaia (1990) a Russian born, Amsterdam based visual artist and photographer.

Artist statement:

My practice departs from a background in documentary techniques, stemming from my first BFA in Photography and Documentary Filmmaking. I draw inspiration from current events, reality and the virtual world, which I deal with through photography and interdisciplinary installations. My work has evolved from themes of voyeurism tied to questioning reality. In my early work this began with my documentary background; I questioned reality through broader platforms, such as the internet and science. My later work developed through a more personal, community-focused lens. It still focused on investigating reality, but it also recognises the political dimension of this, especially through the development of concepts of “proof” and “truth”. This evolves through historical concepts, especially related to “identity” and its stability.
