Biography

"Working across a broad range of media I combine sculpture and durational performance, human body and artificial and natural materials or/and architectural elements to convey existential tensions and invite viewers to consider and experience the sentience of being."

Simona Sharafudinov was born in Lithuania, relocated to the UK at an early age she takes photography and personal experience as points of departure, to trace displaced identity and the sentience of being through performance and image- making. She lives and works in London. She received her MA in Contemporary Photography from Central Saint Martins in 2017 and was the recipient of the 2017 Tiffany & Co. x Outset Studiomakers Award.
