Anastasia Sosunova by Adomas Narkevičius
Anastasia Sosunova is a visual artist based in Vilnius. Sosunova’s multidisciplinary practice, combining video, installation, graphics and sculpture, grows from personal histories and their entanglements within broader cultural, economical and spiritual structures. Her work focuses in particular on the bonds around which communities are forged, from local vernacular art to social neighbourhoods to religious organisations. She observes how these closed groups are developed, often in reaction to other values or beings, and how they subsist through shared sentiments and the development of rituals, traditions and collective agreements. Sosunova graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts with BA in Graphic Arts and MA in Sculpture. Notable solo and two-person exhibitions have been presented at Cell Project Space, London and SixtyEight Art Institute, Copenhagen (2022), Britta Rettberg, Munich; Screens Series programme, New Museum, New York; Swallow, Vilnius (2021); Kogo, Tartu (2019) and Editorial, Vilnius (2018). She has exhibited work at the National Gallery of Art, Vilnius and Kunsthalle Osnabrück (2022), Prospectif Cinéma programme at Centre Pompidou, Paris; FUTURA Contemporary Art Centre, Prague; Baltic Triennial 14, Vilnius (2021).
