Marina Shindenkova is a photographer based in St.Petersburg, Russia. She works with the topics of
social criticism, stereotyping through the prism of personal experience, as
well as the topic of memory and the deformation of reality after death.
Comparing personal experience and social criticism, Shindenkova tries to find a
source of human inclination to unification. In addition, through working with
the archive and personal memories, she explores the features of consciousness
and subjective perception.
The artist is inspired by french cinema of New Wave, texts of Tibetan Buddhist traditions and photographs of post-war Japan.
