Irina Korina (Moscow) has garnered international acclaim for her sculptures and room-sized installations. She was among the group of artists representing Russia in both the 53rd and 55th Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2013 respectively. The powerful theatrical quality taken from her original artwork comes from her training as a scenographer; the settings she creates force observers into a participatory role, casting them as component parts before setting them adrift without a clear direction. The ultimate effect is a dizzying pleasure - an absurd blending of familiar materiality with disorienting composition. Her works have been shown at Scaramouche Gallery, New York; Bloomberg Space, London; XL Gallery, Moscow.
