Darya Koltsova is an artist born in 1987 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Her artistic work, which includes installations, performances and videos, brings together political and personal dimensions. Her works succeed in making current geo-political or social situations sensitive and tangible, by associating their intimate perceptions and their repercussions on individuals. Moving away from an attempt at realistic representation, she gives form to new images, sometimes derived from historical or iconographic research. Since the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the war in Donbass in 2014, she has been working on the effects of war and questioning the possibilities of protections and resiliencies.
