Nika Kupyrova

Nika Kupyrova works in the mediums of installation and photography, using found materials to explore the emotional narratives of living spaces and the concept of “home”.

Found objects interest the artist by their deep-rooted familiarity and gradual re-shaping through possession. In her work, Kupyrova approaches both the mundane and the extravagant of domestics by constructing fictional “homes” which carry the traces of their previous inhabitants, or creating fake household objects, which manipulate the protective, comfort and totemistic qualities of their prototypes.
