Elina Alekseeva 

Elina’s interdisciplinary work unfolds her interest in the intimate and reciprocal connection between people and their surroundings, and the notion of home - in its most broad understanding. With a background in literature, textiles and design research, she works with different media, such as material study, text, participatory performance, photography, and installation. Often applying to intuition and personal immersion, she aims to create space for conversations with each other and the environment, reflection, and imaginative future scenarios.
