Statement


Anisia Affek (1989, Ukraine) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Berlin. In her work, she aims to question our sense of national and self-identity. Her practice concerns issues of cultural erasure and the survival of identity in oppressive environments. 
Deeply influenced by her Ukrainian-Russian-Mongolian heritage, Affek works mainly on handmade, large-scale embroidery pieces that push the boundaries of the traditional craft. With her tactile work, Affek evokes a spiritual space that reaches beyond the Western notions of belonging and the suffocating dichotomy of «us» versus «them.»
