Elizaveta Pavlovna Buzytsky

Coming from a lineage of makers, I was born in the former Soviet Union until my family was granted permission to leave for America before the end of the Cold War. ​

We ultimately landed in Washington State where I grew up. For years, I’ve made objects to commemorate experiences of transition, beginning with materials as physical evidence. I mine the meanings of these raw elements as a starting point, investigating their history and cultural relevance. I am in a constant process of learning about the relationships between people and their things: the making, history and interpretation of objects.

After collecting the material in mass, I determine a structure in the form of a screen, a frame, or a body. This framework is a boundary that invites play and freedom to occur organically. The combination of soft, malleable elements within a strong set of parameters births a new story and consciousness.
