Anais-karenin is an artist and researcher, her work discusses the relationship with nature and its contrasts with artificial materials, acting on the boundaries between animate and inanimate beings. From installations, sculptures, objects, sound and performances, the artist establishes symbiotic relations between distinct elements, raising the cultural paradoxes in the definition of what is or isn't life, what have or not spirit. Her works face the condition of the ephemerality and impermanence of time.
