By supporting my practice, you will receive my latest updates and insights about my working process. In 2018 I started working on the topic of gentrification because I sensed that I myself had become a tool of this process along with many other artists in Amsterdam. I am still working on this project, so the upcoming half a year, I will share with you my research, videos with interviews that didn't make into the episodes and extra information. Besides my practice updates, I will share my personal interests, books, films and music I am into right now!

About

My name is Lyuba Matyunina and I am interested in creating alternative realities and mythologies. Using the genre of documentary as a basis for my work in order to touch the body of ‘reality’, I complement and extend it with my fantasies and dreams. Inspired by ideas of anonymity and the potential unity between the non-human and human life, I have been creating masks and costumes which inhabit my work along with sound, voice, and dance, adding a layer of transformed reality and helping to imagine slips of the intangible between the plates of the familiar.
In 2018 I started working on the topic of gentrification because I sensed that I myself had become a tool of this process along with many other artists in Amsterdam. Over time a number of independent art spaces closed and talented artists left the city they couldn’t afford anymore. In order to research the origins and process of this crisis I have interviewed more than 30 people and created 3 films (2 more are currently in production). I try to make work which not only criticizes but suggests ways to think about the roots of problems and searches for solutions. Through this process I have learned a lot about the urban policies and the politics around gentrification and have come to understand the whole complexity of this issue and its multiple impacts.
I see my mission as an artist as lighting up human hearts. I want my work to speak with the people through the intuitive patterns of the soul. My desire is to share the magic of this world with all the dramas and joys of being together, that’s why I love absurdity and humor.
