Originally hailing from the picturesque region of Baikal, artist Elena Anosova (born in 1983) 
is currently based in Moscow and Irkutsk.

Anosova’s work is centered around lives of women in closed institutions. 
The impulse of research of such communities arose in a reflection of her teenage period
spent at the closed rehabilitation boarding school. She would like to takes a closer look
at the dynamic interplay of processes of isolation and surveillance, at unique qualities
of emotional and social relationships within restrictions of artificially insulated societies.
Also Elena Anosova works with subjects of borders, identity and collective memory
in the territory of Siberia and Russian Far East.
