“I’m fascinated by the idea of adding movement to a sculpture. To stop it in its intensity, to give the impression of lightness is quite a challenge for a work in bronze! I want my animals to dance, leap, glide, lie in wait…and live! Surrounded by animals – dogs, parakeets, rodents – since I was a child in a small Moscow flat, I now have my 12-year-old daughter to take the torch. She’s brought home, in addition to our dog, sheep, goats, turtles, gerbils, goldfish… all potential models for my sculptures. And if my inspiration pushes me toward another animal, I go in search of live models…magnificent encounters with owners of birds of prey, roosters and bush babies…” Tatiana is a Belgian sculptor of Russian origin. She has lived in Belgium for more than 25 years. In 2015 and after a traditional corporate career, Tatiana exhibited her first works which quickly seduced the Belgian and international public with their intensity and strength.
