Miso presents Sarcophagus, Sydney

Visual artist, tattoo artist and friend of RUSSH, Ukraine-born Miso – aka Stanislava Pinchuk – create works that are deeply personal and painstakingly detailed. A refined intricacy pervade her collections, many of which detail her travels to disaster zones, documenting life after conflict. Her latest and largest work to date, Sarcophagus, takes viewers to the Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone. Spanning six metres, the work traces the topographic activity levels inside the exclusion zone, above Reactor 4, and reflects Miso’s upbringing in the Ukraine following the accident. Sarcophagus is on display at China Heights Gallery, Surry Hills, from April 28 to 30.

In collaboration with Bassike, Miso will also be launching her third art book, Fukushima, in Sydney Tuesday May 2 at Bassike’s Paddington boutique.
