"My name is Natasha Yudina. I live in Siberia. Here, there is winter, snow plows, snowstorms, snow drifts, frost and cold weather, so you must wrap in wool, warm up in skins, cover yourself of fur, otherwise you do not survive. Art in Siberia also needs to be warmed up. It must be warmed up, rolled up in wool, protected in skins. My artwork, paintings, fur and thread sculptures, plush embroidery and photographs, are reflections on the history of art that continues in Siberia. "
