RINA VOLNYKH

Rina Volnykh (b. 1997) is a Moscow-based visual artist who uses her practice to (de)(re)construct the legacy of her grandfather—a komsorg was in charge of ideological indoctrination—by turning methods of approaching ideology into artistic strategies. Rina explores the performative shift of television, which function switched from communicational to ritualistic, focusing her attention on television and its roles: the parental figure, educating the Russians on the capitalist living, and the main brace connecting heterogeneous groups into one civil society.
