Stanislava Pinchuk (b. 1988, Ukrainian SSR) 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.
In the upcoming year, Pinchuk has two career survey exhibitions with Heide Museum of Modern Art. Melbourne, Australia and Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth, Australia, as well as beginning production on her debut film commissioned by Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne for a solo exhibition in 2022.
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.
Pinchuk graduated University of Melbourne in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts and double major in Art History and Philosophy.
