Kristina Kostadinova trained in illustration and design, although photography is her preferred medium. Using a neutral language, she eschews any personal reading. Presenting frontal images, she documents elements of both her personal and collective past, questioning and deploying concepts such as memory and amnesia. Like other artists of her generation, she has worked in series to document the recent history of her country, Bulgaria, in which images of monuments serve as visual witnesses of a past that questions the post-Soviet present. She has participated in international exhibitions such as Contemporary Istanbul (2016), Positions Berlin (2016) and Scope New York (2017). In 2013, she won the Volkswagen Prize for Photography at the Swab Barcelona Art Fair.
