maria 
lezhnina







Born in Russia, Maria Lezhnina`s experience is particularly diverse, falling between research projects for the Swiss landscape to an exhibition at the Italian National Museum of 21st Century Arts on the impact of new energysystems, then teaching architecture and knowledge of space to the children with the Finnish school ARKKI, and working for design practices in Moscow (Russia), Mendrisio (Switzerland), Genova, Milan (Italy), Baku (Azerbaijan), and Taipei (Taiwan). This interdisciplinary background, as well as exposure to different cultures, has finally raised her interest in photography and the visual arts. Interested in the atmospheric, gaseous, and liquid aspects of reality that inform the aesthetic experience of vision, Maria Lezhnina is today a visual artist, too, working with photography, books, and other visual media. While she has been exhibited in Taiwan, Japan, Italy, Switzerland and China, her most famous series, untitled climates investigates new ways of landscape photography, elaborating on climate as what defines the landscape.
