Natalia Pershina Yakimanskaya
Fall 2014

Born in Leningrad, Pershina Yakimanslaya (also known as Gluklya) lives and works in St Petersburg and Amsterdam. Shortly after graduating from the Mukhina Academy of Art and Design, she became a co-founder of an artist collective The Factory of Found Clothes which uses installation, performance, video, text and ’social research’ to illustrate the concept of “fragile” - relationships between internal and external and private and public. In 2002, they wrote their manifesto: “The place of the artist is at the side of the weak.”

Gluklya works both as a solo artist and as part of other artist groups combining performance, environmental works, situationist action, video, and direct contact.

Gluklya’s work has been exhibited in Russia and abroad, including at the VOLTA8, Basel (2012), MUMOK, Vienna (2012), Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden Baden (2011), Shedhalle, Zurich (2011), SMART Project Space, Amsterdam (2011), Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid (2011), Kunsthalle, Vienna (2011), ICA, London (2010), National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow (2006).
