Anastasia Sosunova

Born 1993 in Ignalina, Lithuania
lives and works in Vilnius

Anastasia Sosunova’s interdisciplinary practice consists of video, installation, sculpture, graphic art and texts. By employing personal stories, images framing the locations, and subtle material gestures that people leave in their habitats, Anastasia Sosunova weaves them into wider stories about the communities and identities to come.
