Tanja Muravskaja

Tanja Muravskaja is a Tallinn-based artist, whose work proceeds from an analytic approach and psychological observation – be it the psychology of an individual, society, or a place. In her artworks, she tackles such topics as identity and memory, as well as relationships between society and its members. While being concentrated on photography, the medium’s qualities, and its agency in contemporary art, she creates installations that evolve into total environments and embrace the viewer. Muravskaja studied photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts and the University of Westminster. She also studied journalism at Tallinn University. Her works are represented in the collections of Art Museum of Estonia and Tartu Art Museum. Muravskaja is the winner of the Köler Prize 2018 Grand Prix, which was jointly awarded to her and Anna Shkodenko at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia. From January to June 2020, she was a resident at the WIELS Contemporary Art Center in Brussels, Belgium. Her recent exhibitions include “The Tuglas’s Home Garden Through Tanja Muravskaja’s Camera Lens” (Kumu Art Museum, 2019), “Three Sisters: Tanja Muravskaja” (Tensta Konsthall, 2019), Art Encounters Biennial (Timișoara, 2019), “Viral Self-Portraits. Online exhibition” (Moderna galerija MG+MSUM, 2020), “The Isolation Dialogues” (Estonian Museum of Photography, 2020)
