Artist Statement


Letta Shtohryn investigates the entangled relationship between the physical and digital realm, explores post-human thought, human-nonhuman collaborations and speculates about the future. As a method, Letta employs speculative investigations, storytelling, sci-fi inspired amalgamations, using new media, sculpture, video games, commercial goods and imagery. She engages with layers of “reality” that are at odds with each other as well as investigates social constructs and paradoxes.Being ceaselessly inspired by deception, Letta explores the fine line between truth and myth-making. Often her research-based practice can be found combining the historical and the contemporary looking for the interrelation between the current technology and the early (pre)industrial practices. Letta’s work also explores gender constructs and gender representation, as part of her identity is being a full-time woman.
