Masha Gusova was born in Moscow in 1987, emigrated to the United Kingdom as a child and is currently based in Copenhagen. In 2013, she completed her Bachelor in History of Art at SOAS, University of London. Her work is inspired by her background in art history, distorting various historical images in order to question our fragile belief systems and challenge our contemporary aesthetic values. From a visual perspective, she is interested in embracing and reconciling the mastery of the past with the innovation of the present. Gusova’s work encourages us to reassess old patterns of thought.
