Oksana Mas is a Ukrainian artist working in installation, sculpture, video and painting. Her work often poses questions of artistic tradition and craft, utilising Ukrainian customary objects and repositioning them against religious iconography. In 2011, Mas represented the Ukraine at the Venice Biennale with her piece Post-vs-Proto-Renaissance. The artwork was the prototype to her subsequent work Altarpiece of Nations; a replica of the Ghent alter piece completed by 15th century Flemish artists, the Van Eycks brothers, made completely with traditional hand-painted wooden egg shells. She has exhibited in the Ukraine and in 2012 was awarded the Independent Critics award at the Locarno film festival for her video installation ‘Phenenom of Epidermism’.
