Anastasia Pindera is an interdisciplinary visual artist who creates work from her studio in Winnipeg, Canada on Treaty No. 1 territory. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, where she focused on jewellery design and metalsmithing. Pindera creates contemporary jewellery and wearable sculpture installations to explore how social power, particularly patriarchy and capitalism, manifests in the body and influences how we present and feel about ourselves. The body is the main subject in her metalwork, which explores gender, sexuality and Western beauty ideals. She intentionally invites a sense of discomfort into her practice to challenge expected norms surrounding adornment and the body. Pindera is the recipient of several arts awards and has exhibited work internationally. Pindera’s work is not cookie cutter, nor does it intend to be. All her work is made by hand (as well as some blood, sweat and tears). The aim of her arts practice is to encourage empowerment and critical dialogue within a fine art setting, as well as, everyday social spaces on the body of the wearer.
