#WeCreate: Kseniya Simonova’s Sand Art
I’m branching out on a different topic today. There is so much amazing art in the world, and it’s not solely limited to static, traditional media. I also appreciate music, filmography, and performance art, which I hope to showcase here when I can.
Today I want to spotlight Kseniya Simonova.
She is a sand animation artist, and was the 2009 winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent. Her performance art is done by scratching sand around on top of a light box ‘canvas.’ It’s a moving piece of work that morphs as she goes through her exhibition.
This is the first piece of hers I ever saw. It’s a piece about World War II. Hits you right in the emotions, so be ready for some heavy stuff.
