Alina Ozerova is a visual artist and filmmaker passionate about human senses and exploring the distinction between real and fictional in video and sonic projects. She originates from Moscow (b.1983) and is based in Amsterdam. Having been educated in sociology and fine arts, Alina draws from both approaches. The body in its sensory, cultural and spatial contexts is important for her art practice – the body as a ‘system of coordinates’ through which we get into reality.
The video trilogy presented includes ‘Semiotics of Aliveness’, ‘Don’t Worry, I’m Here’, and ‘How I Changed from Being a Stone into a Tree’. In these works, Alina studies the distinction between human or life, corpus or object, body or material, through visual and auditory symbols.
The sound installation ‘SuperScapes’ is a series of binaural sonic experiences recorded in popular Dutch supermarket chains. Deep bass tones of fridges, shopping baskets clatter, electronic scanner beeps. The artist offers you a sound shell of a shopping act, humorously putting a price tag on once completed purchase, now available in an online shop.
