Natalia Gurova is a journalist and artist. She was born in Belarus and grew up in the North of
Russia before studying journalism and working for more than ten years for a range of media.
Since 2014, she has been living in Vienna, where she studied site-specific art at the
University of Applied Arts and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts. Her multidisciplinary
practice includes sculpture, printmaking, drawing, poetry, and site-specific installations. In
her work on a series of overlapping discourses – from speculative storytelling, via spatial
experiments, to post-soviet contexts – Gurova rejects categorical attributions and operates
fluidly at the interface between concept and craft. She interweaves artistic disciplines and
brings together cultural and social communities. Natalia Gurova’s work has been exhibited in
a wide range of settings including Vienna Art Week, PARALLEL VIENNA, the Austrian Cultural
Forum in London, Queer Museum Vienna (Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art),
Galerie Michaela Stock, Improper Walls, das weisse haus, and hoast.
