Darja Shatalova, born in Russia, studied Arts and Maths at the University of Cologne and Transmedia Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
In her artistic works she examines the structures of social phenomena and individual experiences in a mathematical, analytical way.
The aim is to recognize principles and patterns in the diversity of singular events and thus to find an order in one's own life and environment.
The continuously kept recordings and notations take place in artist books, from which elements are translated into performances, space-based installations and sound figures.
Darja Shatalova participated in exhibitions at Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Künstlerhaus 1050 and Krinzinger Projekte, Vienna as well as in several shows in Zurich and Hamburg. She received the Incentive Grant of the University of applied Arts Vienna and the Start Grant of the Federal Chancellery of Austria. Her artist books are collected by the Bavarian State Library, Munich and the mumok Library, Vienna.
