Kira Zhigalina (Russia)

Kira Zhigalina

Born in Moscow, Kira has been living in London for half of her life where she graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She works in a variety of medium but the main focus for her has been film and sound, as well as experimentation with interactive installations and holographic art.

Concerned with externalizing inner experiences, her work is often formed through a subconscious process, creating a diverted perspective to the perception of the world through an archetypal visual language.

She has collaborated with theatre productions, musicians, The Zoological Society of London and others. Her work has been shown in Moscow, Tokyo, London, St.Petersburg and Bulgaria, and has been critically praised by international curators and the public.
