Born in 1994 in Donetsk, Ukraine, Sasha Zaitseva grew up in a Russian-Ukrainian family where she “felt cultural dualism as the norm.” It wasn’t until 2014, during the Ukrainian civil war, that she realized she was carrying two separate cultural heritages. With her Kalina venok, wreaths woven with flowers, she thinks about the role of cultural signs and objects in the formation of identity. The same year she participated in the International Autumn Salon in Tel Aviv (Israel). Since then she has exhibited in France and in Denmark (Greve Museum, 2021). She is a laureate of the 2018 UNESCO prize “Express yourself: culture, an agent of peace.” She became a member of l’Atelier des artistes en exil in May 2022.
