Anastasija Piroženko (Lithuania, 1988) is an audio-visual artist and filmmaker currently based in Amsterdam. She holds an MA in Film from the Netherlands Film Academy (2016). Her practice spans documentary filmmaking and fiction, video installations, and photography. Her films construct slow narratives, through which she explores absurdity in routine, and beauty in the mundane. She is currently researching mimicry in relation to post-Soviet identity after the transition from Socialism to Capitalism, and the discrepancies between the newly adopted Western ideas and Eastern European realities.
Her films have been screened at several international film festivals and art events, including Visions du Reel International Film Festival (CH, 2017), Vilnius International Film Festival (2013), International Contemporary Art Fair Art Vilnius (LT, 2013), and ZubrOFFka International Short Film Festival (PL, 2011).
