Sasha Shevchenko is a Ukrainian, Tkaronto/Toronto based interdisciplinary artist. Inspired by her experience as a Ukrainian person of diaspora, her practice bridges interests in sculpture, textile, archaeology, and intimate ethnography. By combining contemporary and ancient story-telling methods, Shevchenko creates propositional spaces where tradition has the opportunity to whimsically extend into cultural futures. Her work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Small Arms Gallery, VAM, Portland State University, along with international online exhibitions. Shevchenko holds a BFA in Sculpture and Installation from OCAD University.
In the event of the human material,
In the event of dust, and mud, and all that which exists between
us as we walk within the urban site,
In the event of the natural cycle absorbing the artificial,
Comes the event of human mark making through human trajectories.
