Lora Hristova is a Central Saint Martin?s graduate whose mixed media practice engages with gendered themes of identity and sexuality. Her earlier endeavor to probe the creation of the self has slowly been replaced with a desire to explore its destruction and degradation. Anxiety hangs like a spectre in her work. Desires are shameful, memories are traumatic, intimacy is fraught and actions are futile. Siphoning off these insecurities leads to questions surrounding their origin, inherent meaning and ultimate consequences.
