5 Questions with Gluklya

In this 5 Questions interview, artist Gluklya (Natalya Pershina-Yakimanskaya), who works between St. Petersburg and Amsterdam, speaks about the importance of specific, local narratives for her work: "The experiments that I am doing... are the only reality, the only narrative that I can imagine." She identifies feminism and the legacy of the Soviet Union as two critical topics within Russian art in need of further research. Rejecting the "global" in favor of the "international," Gluklya advocates for the horizontal, grassroots tradition that characterizes much of her site-specific work, which follows in the footsteps of the Russian avant-garde.
