Since I was a kid, I’ve had a lot of craft tendencies, I’ve liked to do things with my hands, and I’ve always liked to work with material
Mayana Nasybullova works with sculptural objects and installations. Using gypsum, silicone and resins, she establishes modern trends, exploring mechanisms of individual and collective memory. According to the artist, materials can change the meaning of the work, so she often makes different versions of the same model. Everything can become an object: busts of Lenin, Matryoshkas, tilting dolls and other artifacts from the Soviet era become universal post-Soviet totems.
Her projects were represented in Moscow, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Omsk, Tomsk and Paris. She took part in about 100 group exhibitions, such as the Triennale of Russian Contemporary Art, the NEMOSKVA exhibition (MORE THAN MOSCOW), the Krasnoyarsk Museum Biennale, the Zheleznogorsk Biennale, the 5th Moscow International Biennale of Contemporary Art and others.
Mayana’s works are in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Garage, the Museum Center of Krasnoyarsk, the Iris foundation, the Ruarts foundation and in private collections both in Russia and abroad.
