Mayana Nasybullova b. 1989

The amber is a language of history and memory, I am using it to transmit the problems of its selectivity

Mayana Nasybullova works with sculpture 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. 


Her projects were presented 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 included in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Garage, the Museum Center of Krasnoyarsk, the Iris foundation, the Ruarts foundation and other private collections both in Russia and abroad.
