Stanislava Pinchuk (b. 1988, Ukraine) is an artist exploring the changing topographies of war and conflict zones. With a multidisciplinary practice that spans drawing, installation, tattooing, film and sculpture, Pinchuk surveys the ways in which landscape holds memory and testament of political events and violations of human rights. Using source materials of data, documentation, and detritus surveyed through field-work, Pinchuk’s critical practice reconsiders perceptions of geopolitical borders, migration, climate catastrophe and nuclear crises.
Recent curated exhibitions include: Manifesta 14, Prishtina, Kosovo; and FREE/STATE, Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, curated by Sebastian Goldspink, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia. In 2021, Pinchuk had two career survey exhibitions, Terra Data and The Archeology of Loss, with Heide Museum of Modern Art. Melbourne, Australia and Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth, Australia.
Her work has been previously been supported by major institutions such as The New Museum, New York and the New Inc. / Columbia University GSAPP Architecture Incubator; the Victoria & Albert Museum; and the Wellcome Museum, London, UK.
Pinchuk’s artwork and publishing archives are held in numerous Australian and international private and public collections including Le Louvre’s Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, France; The National Gallery of Australia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia; The National Gallery of Victoria, Australia; Australian Centre for the Moving Image; La Bibliotheque Nationale de France; University of Queensland Museum, Australia; The State Library of Victoria, Australia; Art Gallery South Australia and Art Gallery Western Australia.
