Katya Granova - Voices From A Suitcase

Wed-Fri: 11-6pm; Sat: 11-5pm

Shtager&Shch is pleased to present a new body of work by Katya Granova who moved from St Petersburg to London in 2017.

Granova's practice explores the fallibility of personal memory and collective history and the intersection at which both meet. Initially turning to family albums in search for cultural belonging as a recent immigrant, she has more recently expanded her subjects to anonymous vintage photographs.

As an artist of both dual Russian and Ukrainian heritage the dilemma of national identity has become inescapable for Katya Granova. She has volunteered extensively to support Ukrainian refugees before launching her own initiative set up specifically to support other artists to apply for a talent visa that allows them to pursue their practice in the UK.
