Katya Grokhovsky
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: My interdisciplinary process based practice combines painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, text and video and explores issues of gender, labor, alienation, displacement and the self, often employing the body as a tool to weave together the personal and the political. Utilizing various found materials and objects, I cut and juxtapose them, exposing the absurd in the societal constructs of femininity and masculinity. Scrutinizing the idea of the binary in the everyday, I research the histories of beauty and aesthetics, whilst staging the bodies of the historically oppressed, in relation to the social order. Attempting to invert the ephemeral nature of live performance, versus the object, post-performance residue is frequently re-constructed as evidence of the event, in a sculptural form. Painting, applied to flat surfaces, as well as objects and installations, acts as bodily stand in, evoking visceral response. Drawing, collage and photography, are utilized as mediums of capture, often rearranged to create grotesque beings, inviting the viewer to re-imagine the world.
