About

Daria Vorobyeva is a Russian photo artist based in Moscow. She was born in 1994. In 2015, during her study at the Faculty of biology, started research on the topic of atherosclerosis, wich together with biological education added  the symbolism of corporeality to her works. Technical experiments were often done on Daria's own blood, which were the acts of sacrifice and self-destruction, but also - of self-discovery.

In 2018, after traumatizing events Daria started her psychotherapy which included trauma related work and processing of anxiety and fear. This gave rise to her interest to psychology, especially irrational and subconscious.

Psychological topics of her photography include abandonment, trauma, destruction and self-destruction, fear, and the hidden parts (shadow) of personality. One of Daria's latest projects (both as an artist and as a curator), "Sometimes I'm scared of disappearance", is dedicated to the problem of panic attacs and their connection to existential fears. One of the goals of this project is to help people with increased anxiety and connected psychological conditions.
