Olga Ikonskaya was born in Moscow in 1981. She graduated from the Moscow State University of Printing named after Fedorov with a degree in graphics, attended lectures at the Institute of Problems of Contemporary Art (IPSI). She worked in the genre of performance in theater and cinema, and taught for 2 years. She began to seriously engage in sculpture after moving to the Crimea in 2022.
Olga Ikonskaya: It seems that these sculptures are the embodiment of some entities disturbed by human strife over the earth. Now many are leaving Crimea, going to safer places, but I can’t. Because such work can be done only here and only now. Nowhere and never will they ever get it again. I don’t even invent them. They seem to mold themselves, dictating and prompting me what they want to be.
