Christina Sadovnikov is an artist/forager/community organizer currently living on the land of the Council of Three Fires (Chicago, IL). Her art practice integrates somatics, earth systems science, low-technology, craft practices, and collective memory. These interests coalesce into site-specific installations, exhibitions held outside of institutions, and workshops that center processing lived experiences. The core of her work is located in memory-building, story-telling, and anti-oppressive practices.

Christina graduated with a BFA in Craft and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has been a resident at Mass MoCA for the Assets for Artists Residency Program and at Gullkistan Center for Creativity in Iceland. She has been awarded the Merit Scholarship through Oxbow School of Art and the Fellowship through Arrowmont School of Crafts. Her work has been shown in various places such as Flux Factory (NY), The Plan (IL), the James River Park System ​(VA), Anderson Gallery (VA), and Fried Fruit Gallery (NC).

Currently, Christina is teaching life skills and craft practices to teens, curating a kite show, and making things. Feel free to reach out if you have any good book recommendations or wish to collaborate.
