Anna Irina Russell

Long-term residency

April 2019 - 2022

Anna Irina Russell. Barcelona, 1993

Her artistic practice uses playfulness as a tool for her research on codes of communication and interaction. She enjoys working on ways to transmit information and the manipulation of that transmission, through the emphasis on certain pre-established structures when we communicate. She works with both the distortion and folding of her materials, as well as inhabiting the interference in actions where she questions the spectators or participants in a more direct way.

Both in the actions and in the installations with which she develops her practice, there is a real-time and live component that makes her understand the public not as an object, but as an essential subject that becomes part of the action.

Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona (2015) where she later completed the Master’s Degree in Sound Art (2018). She is one of Hangar’s long-term resident artists (2019-22) and she is an educator at MACBA, where she is also part of the MACBA Web Radio Working Group. She has recently presented an individual exhibition at Écart (Rouyn-Noranda, Canada) and at the Bombon Projects gallery during Art Nou 2020. She has also shown her work at MACBA (Lorem Ipsum 2021), La Casa Encendida (Madrid), Blueproject Foundation(Bcn), Salón (Madrid), CCCB (Bcn), Cityart (Milan), Westwerk (Hamburg), Fundació Suñol (Bcn), among others.

She has participated in various artistic residencies such as Wysing Arts Centre (UK), Écart (Canada) thanks to the Homesession grant, GYCF 2019 (Jeju, South Korea), Reitir (Siglufjörður, Iceland) and Sketch’m Up (Marseille).
