Ekaterina Bazhenova-Yamasaki is a multimedia visual artist, currently lives and works in London.
Born in Moscow, Russia, she received her MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2010.
She produces video and installation, exploring the tension between authenticity and spectacle,
form and feeling, cliché and collective empathy, using moving image, spoken words and music.
Borrowing from the vocabularies of film, television, literature and pop music, Bazhenova-Yamasaki’s
work circles questions of representation and manipulation – in particular with constructs of the self
within private and public space; of emotions, of language, of human relations and human interaction
with an object. Bazhenova-Yamasaki is interested how language can conceal and reveal meaning in
the act of constructing new meaning; she approaches the question of meaning by investigating its
absence, or the impossibility of meaning revealing itself through language. Ekaterina asserts its
presence by questioning how meaning is produced, by both artist and viewer.
