                 /\ Julia Zastava is a visual artist working with drawing, video, sound, installation and performance. She studied ballet, multimedia directing and art. Her practice is based around processes of transition, questions of narration, ideas of the uncanny, unpleasant sensations and social surrealism. Zastava creates fragments of paratopian stories with polymorphous cross species characters, to then loosely connect them through a broken narration in which different modes of coexistence are possible.╱\
