Elena Kostenko – through the labyrinth of experiences – straight into material forms

Welcome to my site!

Here you will find documentation of my ceramic works, textile, digitized analogue photographs, essays and collaborative projects, which are related to my interest in sense of materiality and its fluidity. These works represent a personal trajectory and narratives in a framework of digitalisation and its role in our daily experiences. Reflecting upon the domination of digital technologies, which strive for efficiency and which provide us with a certain comfort, I have an urge to seek room for unmediated self-exploration. I see potential in the re-establishment of links with the physical world around us. My role as an artist is to trace the missing links and find material, tangible forms that embrace the complexity and the depth of human experiences.
