Please welcome Galina Shevchenko, the Moscow born, Chicago based multimedia artist, animator, and videographer.
Stay Tuned to future news from Galina Shevchenko.
Galina Shevchenko is a Moscow born, Chicago based video artist. Galina’s live video performance is a cumulative quintessence of her work as an artist, animator, and videographer. She generates all her visual content, both video and animation. She loves to combine vernacular visual elements with archetypical and cultural icons creating exquisite combinations of high and pop, classical and postmodern. Live video processing allows her to immerse into the video substance, magnify the instance both physically and temporally. It becomes an infinite labyrinth of images seductive and provocative, deconstructed and redefined, a never ending rhythm, abstract and suggestive... it intensifies, relaxes, spins and dissolves. Her performances are contemplations on movement and distance, transport and culture, temporal and eternal, spontaneous and composed, video rhythmic clashes, synesthetic collisions, sequential and unpredictable. Galina’s visual language coexists across her live video performances, animations, video installations and immersive video environments that she creates for art galleries, theatrical happenings and multimedia festivals. Galina has performed live video at many numerous events. Her most recent video work took the second prize at the Media ART LAB segment of Moscow International Film Festival. Her work has been shown in Berlin at Director’s Lounge Video Festival, in New York at Red Shift Film Festival and in Chicago at the Motion Graphics Festival. She is also a member of Chicago based short films collective Group 312 films, Collaboraction theatre company, and she shows her fine art at Moka Gallery. Galina’s live video performance and multimedia explorations are represented via the label known as Psymbolic.
