Linda Zagidulina

b. 1997, Moscow, Russia
based in London, UK.

Linda’s practice spans performance and sculpture. She is invested in the role of support systems and resistance.
Linda works with reflected or camouflaged surfaces that are quite often embossed or casted from their positive forms. She is interested in their subtleness  that is disrupted by the resistance of care these surfaces portray.
