Anastasia Skvortsova

Anastasia Skvortsova is an independent curator based in Saint Petersburg. She focuses on public art, social engaged art and participatory practices, performance art, experimental formats of art presentation and curatorial studies. Anastasia was running independent art space Nepokorennie Open studio (2011-2015). Since 2016 in addition to her independent curatorial practice Anastasia collaborates with «Art Prospect» international public art festival organized by CEC Arts Link, witch invites artists to create site responsive works of public art that encourage civil activity of local communities. Anastasia considers curatorship as a tool for thinking contemporary society through artistic practices.

During the residency I explore Helsinki art scene through meetings with artists and curators, studio visits, attending discussions and performances.
