Lina Ivanova is an artist working with photography, sculpture and installation. Her autobiographical practice is process-led, exploring social narratives of migration, family, history, heritage and displacement. Concerned with appropriation of the archive and found objects, Lina uses industrial materials to negotiate the nature and transformation of the photographic image in space, through the notions of individual and collective memory.
