Contemporary artist and curator k53n14 (Ksenia Nunis) lives and works in the Hague, Netherlands. Drawn to arts since childhood, she studied printmaking and graphic design in Moscow, Russia, and received her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in Amsterdam, the Netherlands at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
For more than thirteen years k53n14 works with emerging and established artists and designers. First, in 2009, she created and curated a series of exhibitions for contemporary artists who work in painting (Moscow). Then, she initiated and co-founded a concept store in 2011, where she filled in positions as a curator, artistic director, and brand ambassador. And later on, in 2017, she founded her own independent gallery VVOVVA. Initiated as an artist-run space, it is not only meant for artists & designers, but also for similar-minded art curators, galleries, platforms, etc.
Being fascinated by nature and the contrast of it to man-made and machine-made, she dived fully into investigating the balance of nature and technology, the future of it. Not only does she reflect her vision through her own artistic practice but also within her contemporary gallery.
In 2020, k53n14 initiated the ESC, devoted to all artists working at any level. The series of exhibitions & open calls ESC aim to give voice and open a conversation about the future of nature and technology, and mainly asks questions rather than gives answers. Each exhibition is co-curated together with open-minded galleries and art spaces, curators, and artists.
