Lyubov Matyunina

Visual artist based in Amsterdam. As an artist she wants her work to speak with people through the intuitive patterns of the soul. Her desire is to share the magic of this world, with all the dramas and the joys that humans experience. In her practice she explores urgent themes of the contemporary, unpacking representations of myths from the past. Matyunina incorporates an anthropological approach in her artistic research. 

With her work she creates alternative realities and mythologies that touch upon the body of ‘reality’ but transforms it by injecting it with fantasies, dreams, humor and a sense of the absurd. The artist juxtaposes rituals, masks, costumes, textile and carpets, folk stories and religious traditions with virtual reality, the Internet and social media, as a means of understanding and rethinking the contemporary. 

Her working process starts with the aim to create from a joyful state of mind, from experimentation and from being in the creative flow. This is what she wants to share through her work.
