Ekaterina Bazhenova Yamasaki
Born in Moscow, Russia. Lives and works in London, UK.
Mixing still and moving image, sculpture and sound, Ekaterina Bazhenova-Yamasaki creates psychologically charged scenarios dealing with human desires. She raises subsequent dialogues with the self and reinterpretations of the female body by developing a distinctive style of film-making, using human interaction with an object to empathise and dramatise the most basic natural instincts, from submission to lust. Bazhenova-Yamasaki creates transgressive narratives, rich in symbolic meaning; and emotionally profound video work where she increasingly blurs the cinematic and the performative. Bazhenova-Yamasaki produces art symbiotically to create her own singular and beguiling world, the ideas and images she conjures also propose a synesthetic interrelationship between the realms of the visible, the audible and the imaginary.
Ekaterina has a Bachelor of Economics from Boras, Sweden and a Master of Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art & Design. She has exhibited in London, Moscow & Berlin.
