Alisa Gorelova was born in 1988 in Kazakhstan.
Lives and works in St. Petersburg. Resident of the studio "Nepokorennye 17" (St. Petersburg).
In her works, Alisa Gorelova touches the various topics, studying the border between a person and the outside world, between a body and another body. The artist works with various techniques, but prefers painting and graphics. In her works, Alisa Gorelova explores corporeality, in which violence turns into sensuality, aggression into vulnerability. The question of the border is the key for her work: where do the boundaries of the body end? When does corporeality become abstraction? Where should the painting end and can the image go beyond the canvas? Often, the works of Alisa Gorelova are presented as pictorial installations that capture all the free space of the room and the viewer's attention.
