Anastasia is an interdisciplinary artist, who’s goal is to create understandable and fundamentally empowering work that speaks with a feminist voice, and has capacity to inspire critical dialogue.
Pindera received her BFA (interdisciplinary) from NSCAD University in 2018, where she chose to focus on craft, specifically jewellery and metalsmithing because she believes the common understanding or function of an object and/or its relationship to the body allows her to create conceptual art that is accessible.
Her politically-focused art practice has inspired a diverse range of projects, including participation in craft shows to the execution of curatorial projects and immersive installations and to various exhibitions from North America to Europe. She has been recognized for both her art jewellery and sculptural metal-work, in the form of publications and awards, including her representation of the jewellery and metalsmithing department/position as finalist in the 2018 NSCAD Starfish Awards.
In 2019, Pindera completed an urban invention mosaic mural about and in collaboration with survivors of domestic abuse during her stay at the MARIA KUNTS Casa Taller residency (Argentina). She currently continues to travel and research in South America, in search of her next inspiration and a deeper understanding of the world around her.
