Gluklya (Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya)

developed for

Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya (artist name Gluklya) is considered as one of the pioneers of Russian Performance and Feminist artistic practice. At present she lives and works both in her birth town Petersburg and in Amsterdam. Gluklya cofounded the artist collective ‘The Factory of Found Clothes’ (FFC) – using conceptualized clothes as a tool to build a connection between art and everyday life and the ‘Chto Delat?’ group, of which she has been an active member since 2003. In 2012, the FFC was reformulated into ‘The Utopian Unemployment Union’, a project uniting art, social science, and progressive pedagogy, giving people with all kinds of social backgrounds the opportunity to make art together. In her projects, Gluklya addresses the personal stories of her characters, analysing them and revealing the conflict between political systems and a person’s inner world. Among her show: ‘Positions 4’, a cura di Charles Esche, Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, NL; “The Return Of Memory”, Manchester’s Home, Manchester, UK; “dis/order, art and activism in Russia since 2000”, Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen, DL; ‘All the World’s Futures’, curated by Okwui Enwezor at the 56th Venice Biennale, Manifesta 10 Public Programme, MMOMA Moscow, “Reflecting Fashion”, MUMOC Vienna, Shedhalle Zurich, ACC Galerie Weimar, HOME Manchester, Pratt Institute New York, MOMA New York (talk).
