Tanja Muravskaja

Residency

Tanja Muravskaja is a photo artist, whose work proceeds from the analytic approach and psychological observation – be it psychology of an individual, society or a place. In her artworks, she tackles such topics as identity and memory, as well as relationships between the society and its single members. While being concentrated on the photography, its medium qualities and its agency in the contemporary art, Muravskaja creates installations that evolve into total environments and embrace the viewer.

Tanja Muravskaja (b. 1978, Pärnu, lives in Tallinn) studied photography at the Estonian Academy of Arts (2002–2010) and the University of Westminster (2004–2005). She also studied journalism at the 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 Anna Shkodenko and Tanja Muravskaja at the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia.
