Nika Neelova (b. 1987) is a Russian artist based in London. Her recent exhibitions include ‘EVER’, The Tetley, Leeds (2019), ‘She sees the shadows’ Group exhibition DRAF & Mostyn, UK (2018) and EVERYWHEN Brighton CCA (Upcoming 2021). She studied MA Fine Art Sculpture at Slade School of Art, London.
Nika Neelova makes evocative sculptures and installations that resonate with associations of history, personal memory, and the rise and fall of civilizations. Inspired by multidisciplinary research into the artefacts that form the surrounding world and using existing and fictional narratives, the pieces are often based on salvaged materials from lived-in environments, reconciling recognisable day-to-day objects and pronouncing their alternative qualities.
