Lina Ivanova is an artist and co-founder of Revolv Collective, based in London. Her work is a play between digital and analogue photography, video and installation. Engaging in auto/biographical notions of self and other as a starting point, she attempts to confront how class and background can determine status in a neoliberal climate.
