Katya Selezneva (b. 1989) is a visual artist working with photography, installations, video, and sound.
The key issue of her research is related to the instability of the visual image and the place of a person in the modern media space. Her interests also lie within the field of collective memory and it's flexible nature. She is currently working on projects exploring the dual role of the archive as evidence and myth-maker.

She graduated from The Rodchenko Art School and made several projects in collaboration with museums, different galleries and self-organized initiatives in Russia, Ukraine, France and others.
