Olga Krykun (b. 1994 in Odessa, UA, lives and works in Prague) studies at the Department of Fine Arts at The Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She works predominantly within the mediums of video, audio and performance. Combining elements of story-telling with contemporary symbols, her works evoke a kind of trance-like surrealism.
