Gluklya (Natialia Pershina-Yakimanskaya) (b. 1969, Leningrad) lives and works in St. Petersburg and Amsterdam. Gluklya and Tsaplya (Olga Egorova) co-founded the artists’ collective Factory Found Clothes (FFC) in 1996. The artists use art and social research to explore concepts of gender and fragility through participatory experiences, installation, performance, video and text. Since 2003, Gluklya has been an active member of the group Chto Delat (What is to be done). She often uses clothing as a tool to build connections between art and everyday life, and has contributed to the Critical Mass Festival, and the public programme of Manifesta 10, and the exhibition All the World’s Future, curated by Okui Enwezor, during the Venice Biennal in 2015. She has also shown her work at institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, Arnhem (2014); Hermitage Museum, Amsterdam (2013), MUMOK, Vienna (2012), and the National Centre of Contemporary Art, Moscow (2006).
