Originally from Siberia, Russia, Yulia Kovanova lives in Scotland. She achieved MFA in ‘Art, Space & Nature’ at the Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh).
Yulia’s art practice concerns the investigation of movement, borders and boundaries, and perception, exploring the crossovers between people, society and environment. Working from the idea that everything is interconnected, she looks to examine these areas through an interdisciplinary approach and across a range of media, including installation, moving image, sound, and through collaborations with dancers, musicians, scientists and other artists.
Projects and exhibitions include large scale public art installation, ‘TONN’, at Aichi Triennale in Japan, ‘Circumpolar’ installation at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, moving image and sound installation, ‘DOT’, at the Hidden Door Festival. Yulia has been selected to take part in a number of artists’ residencies, including London Fieldworks’ Outlandia, Setouchi Triennale residency in Megijima island (Japan), and Hospitalfield interdisciplinary artists’ residency (Arbroath, Scotland).
