ARTIST BIO

All About Veronica Shimanovskaya

Shimanovskaya’s life was steeped in art and literature from the early age. She lived and worked in Italy, Russia, USA and UK and is currently based in the New York. Classically trained, she expanded her practice to conceptual art, installation and moving image, but has never abandoned painting.

 

Grounding herself in metaphysics, Veronica is interested in pure subjectivity, and searches for an almost “pre-conscious” innocence of being (a concept known as apperception). Her multicultural background contributes to her interest in visual semantics and iconogenesis. She studied art, architecture and theatre and has her MA and Doctorate degrees from the University of East London, University of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Harvard University respectively. She is a curator and a founder of epehemereye, a digital platform focusing on video art and artists working with video.

 

She is a recipient of the 2019 Mayor of Kobe Art Award, and a Certificate of Merit of the Luxembourg Art Award 2021. Veronica has shown her work at the London Art Week, Thessaloniki Art Week, 57th, 58th, and 59th Venice Biennale, Oaxaca Contemporary Art Museum (MACO), Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, and more.
