Sasha Litvintseva

Sasha Litvintseva was born above the arctic circle in the Russian North, brought up in Moscow, and has lived in London since 2004. A graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art she is currently working on a PhD by practice at Goldsmiths, University of London, researching temporality in contemporary artist film, and beginning a sprawling epic of a feature, looking for new poetic imagery with which to grasp the shifting time-planes we find ourselves in. By means of the indexical present her films excavate the layers of history, past and future, embedded in landscapes and architecture.

Her work has been shown in solo and group shows worldwide, including the Wroclaw Biennial, Poland, Contemporary Art Museum of Bogota, Institute of Contemporary Art, London, Palazzo Flangini, Venice, Beeldende Kunst, Arnhem, IMT Gallery London, Image/Movement, Berlin, Union Pacific, London, AC Institute, New York, and film festivals including Ann Arbor, Edinburgh Film Festival, Kasseler Dokfest, Kino Der Kunst, Chicago Underground Film Festival, Antimatter Film Festival and Alternative Film and Video Festival, Belgrade. She has been twice nominated for the Golden Key award, and her film Evergreen is coming out on DVD at the end of 2015.
