Christina Sadovnikov is an artist/forager/community organizer currently living in Richmond, VA (Pamunkey land). Her art practice bridges the disciplines of craft, low-technology, sculpture and site-specific installation. By moving between these disciplines, she attempts to forge generative relationships with the objects that surround us, collective memories, and the landscapes we are continuously shaping.
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, the Outstanding Student Award through the Surface Design Association, and the Student Fellowship through Arrowmont School of Crafts. Her work has been shown in a variety of places such as the James River Park System, Studio Two Three, Anderson Gallery, and Fried Fruit Gallery. Currently, Christina is reading about deep time and organizing group art exhibitions in odd places across Virginia.
