Anna Zvyagintseva is an artist from Ukraine.

In her practice she investigates imperceptible, impalpable facets of life, showcasing their fragility and documenting elusive intangible moments. Anna is working with topics such as body, paths, useless action, small gesture. She focuses on the idea of potentiality doing something without clear purpose, she researches how hesitation and mistakes can lead to unexpected encounters and outcomes. Many of her works speaks about potentiality of doubt and are an attempt to observe movement of thought.

Anna is particularly interested in situations which appear as unburdened by extreme effort or high expectation, as well as in small gestures which were done quickly, and which don’t claim to assert some form of truth.

Her oeuvre is made by an entanglement of drawing in various forms and transmedial variations like sculpture, installations, video and painting.
