Dr. Tatiana Koroleva
Part-time Professor, Studio Arts
Tatiana Koroleva is a multi-disciplinary artist and researcher who works in the mediums of performance art, video art and creative writing. A graduate of a doctoral program in Humanities at the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture, Concordia University(Montréal), Koroleva explores intersections of art practice and theoretical research in cultural anthropology and religious studies. Focusing on participatory aspects of performance art, Koroleva introduces innovative methods of interaction with the audience based on adaptation of ritualistic practices to the context of late-capitalist societies. Since 2004 Koroleva has performed locally and internationally including her participation in International Women’s Film Festival (NY, USA), Body Navigation International Dance Festival (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) and Nuit Blanche(Montréal, Canada).
Her academic research, teaching and writing addresses the subjects of individualisation and separation in late-capitalist societies and the process of alternative communities’ formation in the framework of performance art. A Holder of Fulbright scholarship (USA) and Concordia University Fine Arts fellowship (Canada), Koroleva engages in a rigorous research-creation process combining methods of studio arts and critical theory.
