Vlada Predelina


My work looks into the meaning of home and sense of place through a range of mediums such as collective making of food, natural dyes, bioplastics, ceramics and documenting uses of native plants alongside intimate discussions and situated histories. 

Currently undertaking MA in Fine Arts at HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht where I am researching the role of tacit knowledges of women in relation to land and colonial expansion.
Since 2020 I have been working as part of Eathouse collective, an artist collective initiated to provide healthy affordable food, a generous meeting point and workshops on the topics of food culture, gathering and sustainable ways of living, with three other artists: Jake Caleb, Merve Kılıçer and Ulufer Çelik.


Born in 1991, Ekaterinburg, Russia 

Lives and works in London, UK and Rotterdam, NL
