Biography & CV

Maria Kulikovska is a multimedia artist, architect, actionist-performer, researcher and lecturer in exile. She was born (1988) and grew up in the ancient city of Kerch on the edge of the Crimea peninsula (Ukraine), where she cannot return since the illegal annexation of the peninsula by Russia.
In Kyiv (Ukraine), she completed her master's degree at the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture (2007-2013) in Architecture of Buildings and Structures. She is currently completing her second master's program in fine arts at Europe's leading university – Konsfack in Stockholm, Sweden.
In 2011, her architectural project of the Shcherbenko Art Center of the Contemporary Art Center in Kyiv won, and was designed in the same year. She soon worked in China and Switzerland as an architect, but in the meanwhile returned to the art as performances and sculpture, which were internationally acclaimed.

During 2012, Maria was invited to implement a personal project at the Isolation Contemporary Art Center in Donetsk, where she created her one of the most important and influential works of hers "Homo Bulla - a human like a soap bubble". In the same year, she received an AKKU Award from the Department of Culture of the Canton Zurich in Switzerland. She was a nominee for the Pinchuk Art Prize with the performative installation "Soma – a body without gender" in Kyiv in 2013. Same year, Kulikovska was selected for the Ukrainian-Swedish art exchange Ruta-Runa where she met her ex-wife – Assyrian-Swedish artist Jacqueline Shabo, with whom she collaborated in the "Body and Borders" project – same-sex marriage-as-performance (2013-2017). The performative project "Body and Borders" raised and actualized the theme of freedom of the female body, its choice, equality and corporeality to the boundaries of power and society.

The sculptural projects "Army of Clones" (2010-2014) and "Homo Bulla" (2012-2014) at Isolaytsia Art Center in Donetsk, were destroyed by DNR (Donetsk Nation Republic) through occupation forces in Donetsk. After the outbreak of hostilities in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea in the summer of 2014, Maria was declared by the DNR as a "degenerative artist" because of her works and same-sex marriage-as-performance.

After a dramatic personal and professional experience of working with Jacqueline Shabo, Maria completed the "Body and Borders" project on March 3, 2017, and from March 8 of that year began working with architect-engineer Uleg Vinnichenko, who became technical director, co-developer, co-author of Maria's projects and her partner.
Her recent works include numerous exhibitions, actions, performances, sculptural objects and videos, such as: "254" (unauthorized performance at the Hermitage, St. Petersburg, 2014); White (performance under the Crimean Bridge, Moscow, 2015); #onvacation (participant of the collective unauthorized performance at the Venice Biennale, 2015); "Happy Birthday" (performance in Saatchi Gallery, 2016); "War and Peace" (performance on the mined beach of Mariupol, 2016); "Migrating Parliament of Displaced Persons: Raft CrimeA" (2016-present, performance, social sculpture); performative sculpture "Star Dust" (Mystetskiy Arsenal, 2019).

Maria has been exhibited twice at the Saatchi Gallery; her "Homo Bulla. Replica" was bought by one of Germany's largest public collections – the Deutsche Telekom Art Collection; Maria was invited to the 2-month residence of the Liverpool Biennale (September-October 2017); also invited by the Munich Ministry of Culture (October-November 2018) for the two-month residence at the Pasinger Cultural Center and Ebenbockhouse; during the period of spring-summer of 2018, her sculptural triptych was presented at the Ludwig Museum (Budapest, Hungary) in the group exhibition "The Permanent Revolution"; 3 Soap Figures were installed in the public park of the biggest cultural center of Santiago de Compostela in Spain "Cidade da Cultura"; In December 2019 Maria received a special scholarship-honors for her diploma thesis from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Konstfack University in Stockholm, Sweden.
