Biography and information

Marina Zvyagintseva is one of the founders of public art in Russia and the largest site specific artist in the country. Marina's business card is the performative technique of biotyping, which the artist uses in media art, 3D objects and art installations of large and small forms. Since the spring of 2020, Marina has been creating a series of works dedicated to locked feelings and social issues of relationships between people. This theme became the main one for the new period of creativity.

Marina is nominated for the VII All-Russian competition in the field of contemporary visual art "INNOVATION" (2012), the ARCHIWOOD Prize (2012), twice nominated for the Kandinsky Prize (2008 and 2009) and the Kuryokhin Prize (2011 and 2018). Marina is also a member of the Creative Union of Artists of Russia, the Moscow Union of Artists and the Board of Trustees of the State Budgetary Healthcare Institution "Morozovskaya DGKB DZM".

Over the past decade, Marina Zvyagintseva, as the ideologist and curator of the public art projects program "Sleeping District", has been developing the idea of contemporary art's invasion of the cultural vacuum of urban outskirts. Marina's large-scale art objects are installed in the courtyards of the Higher School of Economics in Khitrovsky Lane, in the Fabrika CTI, in the Morozov Children's Hospital, the Polytechnic Museum, the ARTPLAY Design Center, the Skolkovo Research Center, as well as on the facades of the public library in Norilsk, on the facade of TIAM in Tula and the facade of the author's school of Sergei Kazarnovsky "Class-Center" in Moscow.
