visual artist, director
Ksenia Galiaeva, 1976, Pskov, Russia; lives and works in Antwerp, BE and Amsterdam, NL. Galiaeva teaches Photography and Fine Art at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and is represented by gallery Ellen de Bruijne Projects. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows, amongst others in Schiedam Museum - NL, Fries Museum - NL, Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch - NL, Moscow MOMA - RU, Seoul MMCA Changdong - KR.
For her work, Ksenia uses the umbrella title 'Unreal Estate', which can be interpreted as autobiographical fiction (manipulation and constant rewriting of an autobiographical story), but also has parallels with the construction of (national, fictional) identity.
