Sophia Bulgakova was born in Odessa, Ukraine in 1997. She was studying sculpture in Kyiv and then getting a foundation diploma in Photography and Time-Based Media in University of the Arts, London in the UK. Currently, she is studying at ArtScience interfaculty in Royal Academy of the Art, The Hague (Netherlands) and developing her practice as visual and performance artist.
Most of her recent works are created with an intention of exploring a relationship between light and perception and particularly focusing on the individual abilities and ways of seeing. Creating spaces, situations or conditions for the audience to expand their perception and focus on their own personal unique experience inside the work itself.
