Crossroads is about the impossibility of postponement, the importance of decision making, and the choice between an old, ineffectual self and a transformed identity.
Victoria Alexandrova was born in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia in 1982. At the age of 15, she moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, then to Finland, and finally to Berlin, where she currently resides.
Growing up in foreign environments impacted her as a person and as an artist. This exposure allowed cultural nuances to shape her creativity, capitulating a mindset that is free from stagnancy. Alexandrova’s self-reflection is the only consistency in the ever changing scenery. Self-portrait acts as the recurring theme throughout as it is the bridge that connects her inner self to the outside world. The study of pneuma and varying states of mind have inevitably become the prevalent topics of her work.
Victoria is a self-taught artist and her works are created by a variety of media, including painting, sculpture in wood, clay and stone, and photography. For Victoria, working with different media feeds her inquisitive nature and helps her to understand how things work, behave, and feel, and shows her how to benefit from their various qualities when creating her art.
