In her artistic and research practice Masha Maroz explores the historical Belarusian context through the lens of synthetics between the archaic forms and technologies assuming the transformative potential of traditional culture in the dominant socio-political matrix. Inspired by quantum physics, Oriental philosophy and the ancient worldview of the Slavs, the artist sees affinity connections between these forms of knowledge.
Maroz is a founder and curator of the Past Perfect platform, dedicated to the preservation and popularization of the ethnographic heritage of Belarus. Expeditions to the Polesia region are an important part of her research. With an interest in crafts, material and image-making she uses a diverse array of disciplines to develop her language through different artistic forms: installations, textiles, photography, analog and digital graphics, objects.
