Lesia Pcholka

Artist in residence, Stockholm, March 1 – May 27, 2023

Lesia Pcholka is a Belarusian artist based in Poland and Germany. Her practice includes photography, video, installations, and archival work. Through research, she preserves, analyses and explores the concept of collective memory; collecting community archives to examine memories from the Soviet past, reflecting on the present social issues and processing political trauma.

During her residency at IASPIS she will continue working on the project called VEHA museum, an independent archive for preserving the visual history of Belarus. She will also work on a book about Józef Szymańczyk’, a photographer active during the occupation of Belarus, World War II.
