Annouchka Brochet

Born in Moscow, Annouchka Brochet graduated from Moscow's Kalinin Art Academy and the Polygraph Institute with a specialization in graphic art. In her artistic practice she takes a strong feminist position and questions the role of women artists to investigate the film between the internal and the external. She extends this concept to consumer consumption and women as slaves to their physical appearance. In this dialogue, make-up (paint in Russian) becomes a double-edged sword – both a barrier to the internal self and flimsy layer of protection for the outward external self. This dialogue extends to her interest in the surface and skin of paint.

Annouchka Brochet has exhibited on extensively in Russia and Europe. Her works can be found in the collection of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art and the Moscow Musuem of Photography and Multimedia Art. A painting from her Vulnerable series sold at Sotheby's November 2011 Russian Contemporary Art Auction.
