Chrystal Cherniwchan is a Canadian artist currently living in the UK. She attended the Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary where she completed her BFA degree in photography. Chrystal received her MA in Multidisciplinary Printmaking with distinction from the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK. During her time there, she was awarded the Agassi Book Arts Prize for her installation ‘mishappenings’. She recently exhibited in a group show ‘Incarnations: When Photography Takes Shape’, at the Rencontres d’Arles, Arles, France. She uses materials such as photography, video, audio field recordings, text, and voice, and considers her projects to be speculative, in the way they sit in-between the binaries often used in the discourse around documentary practice. She often uses landscape as a stage to perform and/or appropriate narratives that exist within a place, attempting to create metafictions.
