Katja Novitskova, born 1984 in Tallinn, Estonia, lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin. She graduated from the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam in 2010 and was an artist in residence at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam from 2013 to 2015.
Novitskova’s works includes digital cutouts, sculptures, and installations as well as collaborative projects and artist publications.
