My name is Lyubov Matyunina and I am an artist and filmmaker based in Amsterdam. I work primarily with the medium of moving image. I earned my master’s degree in Journalism and Bachelors degree in Fine Arts, which has greatly influenced my work: literature and current events form my starting point. In my artistic practice I aim to push the boundaries of traditional documentary filmmaking and capture a sense of the absurd. I use journalistic methods combined with performance, art installations and fabric textiles to create a multidisciplinary platform to explore my ideas. Within this schema, I juxtapose rituals, myth, masks and old religious traditions with virtual reality, the Internet and social media as a means of understanding and rethinking the contemporary.
