Anna Perach (b.1985) currently an MFA, Fine Art student at the Goldsmiths, University of London. She works with mixed media techniques to create two- and three-dimensional objects inspired by Slavic folk stories and traditional craft techniques juxtaposed with contemporary materials and narratives. In her practice, she explores the way cultural transitions influence one’s sense of self and the relationships in the domestic sphere. She is also interested in pagan rituals and their role in the community. In recent projects, she has been creating hand tufted masks inspired by Slavic ritual traditions and by the Soviet practice of hanging carpets on the wall as means of protection from the cold, isolation from neighbours, and decoration. In this project, she explores the past as an ongoing experience which is both external and internal. Anna is living and working in Tel Aviv and London.
