As the Mind it Changes
Graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, Moscow Institute of contemporary art, Moscow state University named after M. Lomonosov (faculty of journalism, Department of photography).
Margo calls the Russian avant-garde her source of inspiration: utopian ideas captivate Margot as an object of desire, reflection: memory and doubt, comprehension through the prism of history. Margo Trushina explores metaphors and ways of interacting with the environment through light installations, sculpture, photography and interventions. Plants, metals, wood - and found objects, ready-made: so the artist contrasts organic and artificial, intentionally created – and forms her "fragile worlds".
Participant of II and III Moscow Biennale of contemporary art, III Moscow international Biennale of young art, land art festival Archstoyanie, art festival cosmos. Her works have been exhibited in Turin, Berlin, London, as well as in Moscow museums and Russian art-residences. Winner of the British Embassy grant, Margot is twice winner of the Golden Camera of the year competition. Participant of art fairs: Art Moscow, London Art Fair. In 2015, the artist was a finalist for the UK national prize for sculpture-Broomhill National Sculpture Prize.
