Polina Isurin is a two-time immigrant who has exhibited domestically and abroad. Originally from Leningrad (St. Petersburg), Russia, she lived in Israel before coming to the United States with her parents. Her cross-cultural and bilingual upbringing influence her exploration into how the sites and remnants of memories structure culture, society, and identity. Polina's interdisciplinary art practice has always been dependent upon utilizing the medium most appropriate for the concept, while her site-specific work is generated alongside a specific community. Additionally, Polina has been teaching visual art courses to middle, high school, and college level students since 2012.
