Alyona Larionova - Our Sixth Artist of the Week!

We're continuing to get a fantastic response for AoW and the standard of work keeps getting better!  This weeks winner is Alyona Larionova, a talented video and installation artist.  Larionova combines objects and processes that are recognizable in our daily experiences in order to comment on the relations between stillness and movement, duration and immobility. These intimate and softly presented narratives are made by the artist to test the limits of the mediums she works with.   Her recent works are inspired by Chinese tradition of Chinese calligraphy with water, where the process of writing becomes more important than the writing itself.  Check out her videos at
