Ekaterina Sisfontes by Angy Adams
I was born in the Soviet Union and moved to Sweden two years before its fall.
I was lucky to have the opportunity to develop most of my dreams into reality.
I am a multidisciplinary artist with a broad range of skills.
I have been working with jewelry design since 2005, which culminated in my starting my brand SisKa 2005. Though many aspects of my life changed since then, I continue to create jewelry, participate in academic research about the future of jewelry design and teach university-level design students all around the world.
My jewelry pieces have been sold at museum stores of the National Museum of Sweden, the British Academy of Art, North Dakota Art Museum, to name a few.
At the beginning of 2010, I began to work with diverse media and art forms to reach out to both audience and fellow artists, using art as a peaceful tool of communication, ignited by my love and appreciation of the way a camera captures visions and moments to make them eternal.
During the years, I have been working with photography, using some of my images as part of visual installations that partook in different exhibitions around the world among others First Biennale of Graphic Art in Israel, 2015, and V Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art 2014
I have done a few video-art projects that were shown all around the globe participating as public art objects in both indoor exhibitions at the Museum of Darwinism, Moscow in 2015 and on the walls of houses In Krasnodar, Russia, in 2015 and even on a castle in Sargan Schloss, Switzerland, 2013
I was also fortunate to co-produce and co-write a scene performance that was shown to the public on a theatrical stage with me as one of the two performing artists.
I had the privilege to coordinate and curate the First International performance festival PER FROM, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2015.
I have built quite a few sculptures in different countries exhibiting on my own or as an invited artist for festivals and Biennale of Contemporary Art. By working with iron, I was able to make objects that could as well be a part of the city landscape.
For the moment I do not limit my dreams and learn from each object I make and each project I partake in.
My idea was not a biography per se but mostly an introduction.
