Gluklya aka Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya

Gluklya / Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya (born 1969 in Leningrad, Russia) lives and works between Amsterdam and St. Petersburg. Considered one of the pioneers of Russian performance art, she co-founded the artist collective Factory of Found Clothes (FFC), which uses conceptualised clothes referencing Utopian prepositions, and aims to bring about change in society.  She is also part of the Chto Delat group, a multidisciplinary collective of which she has been an active member since 2003.

Her work was featured in the exhibition All the World’s Futures, curated by Okwui Enwezor for the 56th Venice Biennale. Her work has been presented in exhibitions at Museum Arnhem; Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Modern Art Moscow; the 10th Krasnoyarsk Museum Biennale; MUMOK, Vienna; Creative time Summit, US; and at Shedhalle, Zurich. In 2017, Gluklya partakes in the group exhibition It won’t be long now, Comrades! at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.

Gluklya is one of the participating artists of Drawing Stories (2020) curated by Framer Framed and presented as part of the online exhibition Corona in the City, organised by Amsterdam Museum.
