Olga Kisseleva (Russian: Ольга Игоревна Киселёва; born 1965 in Saint-Petersburg) is a Russian artist. Olga Kisseleva works mainly in installation, science and media art. Her work employs various media, including video, immersive virtual reality, the Web, wireless technology, performance, large-scale art installations and interactive exhibitions.


As early as the beginning of the 1990s Olga Kisseleva became, thanks to an invitation by the Fulbright Foundation, part of a team of creators working on the development of numerical technologies in the United States. She primarily stays at Columbia University and University of California, where she participates in the adventure of the first start-ups of the Silicon Valley.

The work of Olga Kisseleva constantly interweaves actions that reveal themselves in the urban environments or in network with interventions in galleries and museums. For the 5th Dakar Contemporary Art Biennial, she presented « Une Voyante m’a dit... », an alarming method, where the artiste publicly exchanges her look with different participants to symbolically endorse their identity and see the world through their eyes. « Where are you? » places the phenomenon of the teleobjectivity to the centre of the project while proposing an immersion within reality, in environments that truly raise the imagination. Leaving one collects photographs accumulated during their peregrinations through the world; the artiste makes obvious the impressive gaps to which one attends in all contemporary megalopolis. Rewarded by the International Prize ProArte (Russia), Olga Kisseleva works in collaboration with The Academy of Sciences « Hybrid Space », a body of twelve interactive installations, a perilous game, that explores the capacity of the spectator to reveal the presence of a border, that separates reality and the imagination.[1]
