ARTIST AT A GLANCE
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Available For Project Types:
Anna Polistuk is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto. She has a diverse practice that involves painting, illustration, photography and sound. Her work is inspired by the human-nature relationship and research into consciousness and identity. Anna has studied psychology, film, photography and scenography as well as meditation, hypnosis, yoga and ceremony. She is interested in engaging with art as a sister methodology to science, a way to explore difficult to conceptualize experiences such that of being human, the “self”, sensations of heightened awareness, and relationships with land.
She has exhibited her work across Canada and the United States. In addition to her studio practice, she is actively involved in community-focused arts projects which have included documentary research on feminicide in Guatemala, organizing neighbourhood art and dance events here in Toronto, and most recently, working as curator and designer with Taboo Health, non-profit organization creating public art exhibitions that open dialogue on complex and challenging issues in contemporary health care.
