Elena Antonishina is currently based in Stockholm. She is attending the University of Arts, Crafts, and Design (Konstfack) where she is studying ceramics and glass. Previously, she worked with photography for almost ten years.
Her ceramic sculptures are narrative, they have intertwined Slavic mythology, riddles, memories from childhood, and present feelings and experiences. Elena Antonishina started to work with glass in 2021 and is translating her working process with ceramics to glass. She disputes norms in glass craft and creates objects which are beautiful and unique in their imperfection.
Through art, Elena explores herself, her love and hatred, her fears and hopes, and expresses social pains that concern her. Her art reflects her poetic mind, a search for the unknown and an attempt to widen her inner borders. She continuously develops and refine her techniques and her process is playful and experimental. She speaks the language that works best for her – the language of form and imagery.
