Alina Tenser
Visual Arts Residency

Alina Tenser is Ukrainian born sculptor and video artist currently living and working in Brooklyn. She received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA where she has taught as Adjunct Faculty and served as Director of the Summer Studio Program. This year she was awarded the Dedalus MFA Fellowship from the Robert Motherwell Foundation. At Pioneer Works, she worked on Holistic Approach, a project that explored the artist’s bodily relationship to her artwork. The immersive environment of interdependent forms considered how fragmentation and autonomy not only reveal the whole but also bring an intimate understanding of what it is like to be whole.
