ARTIST STATEMENT 

Alina Sokolova is an artist working primarily with painting and video, she was born in Ukraine and is based in Vienna. In 2021 she graduated from the Academy of Fine arts in Vienna (Art and Photography class under prof. M Guttmann).
My artistic practice can be described as an elaborate exploration of movement. I have a special interest in the repetitive gestures of contemporary labor and the mechanisation of our everyday life. I am fascinated by the exploration of movements that have become common property and are a testament to their time and the ever-changing social climate. Even though I often extend the medium of painting by merging it with videos and choreographic elements, I would still define myself as a painter.
