Anastasia Savinova / We Swim in One Water

Anastasia Savinova, born near Ural Mountains in Russia, but now works and lives in Umeå. In recent years her focus has shifted to ecologies, exploration of the connection and boundaries between human and nature and human's place in the environment. Her practice spans photography, drawing, text, collage, video and performance. Her work has been shown in Sweden, Germany, Israel, USA, The UK, Spain, Italy, and Norway.

Interconnected through water, we are together in a watery siblinghood: all born from the sea. Global Ocean, the vast body of water, envelops the Earth, and our bodies too contain much water within. All waters are interrelated, so are all living things. A sample of Global Ocean, created in the performance, brings together waters, stories, cultures, places, and people.
