Adriana Bogdanova is a visual artist, living and working between London and Amsterdam. She completed her education in Fine art (BFA) at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London. Her body of work spans from collages, photography to most recently installations and sculptures. Her work has been shown in The Netherlands and throughout Europe (e.g. Berlin, London, Budapest, Vienna).
In her work she mostly uses natural forms such as dead insects, rocks, branches, trees, and other objects connected to the natural realm, depicting nature and the possibility of discovering relationships outside of aesthetic structures, such as geometry or science. By focusing on these particular relationships she creates conceptual and abstract notions, distancing herself from the obvious associations and connotations that come with seeing nature. She never makes work solely about nature but instead about ideas of nature, never about things but again ideas we might have about things. Therefore her work functions like a series of events that are spliced together out of materials, voices, ideas, desires and symptoms requiring a figuring out because it is either a network or labyrinth. She expresses aspects of the world in such a way that the viewer is stimulated to consider alternative points of view other than the obvious stereotypes.
