Falkova Zoya

Née en 1982 à Almaty, elle y vit et travaille actuellement.

L’œuvre vidéo de Zoya Falkova, Rêves de Mnémosyne, personnifie le désir de créer un « objet vidéo idéal ». L’approche formaliste adoptée par l’artiste est ouvertement démonstrative et mélange adroitement des documents d’archives (ancien film documentaire trouvé par Falkova miraculeusement échappé à la pluie et la neige), des schémas du corps humain et autres images médicales et toute une série d’autres dispositifs techniques typiques de la culture contemporaine du clip vidéo. Ce montage d’images d’horizons divers devient une œuvre unique et ouverte où la question de l’archivage par l’artiste est posée.
