Gender-asymmetry and striving for balance is the impetus behind Kova’s state of artistic mind, her works and projects. Kova’s background and experiences have led her to the ultimate exploration of these topics. Born in Vladivostok (USSR), Vika Kova grew up in Germany. Back to Russia, after graduating from Moscow Conservatory, she moved to Holland becoming a successful singer, DJ, performer and later, a multimedia / video artist. As an international DJ, Kova stood out in a profession dominated by men. This experience triggered her interest in gender issues within social, and cultural frameworks; and directly influenced her identity as an artist. Kicking against the establishment in a non-aggressive way, pushing the boundaries between reality and technology, Kova emerged in 2014 with her project LAND of GOOD, where she raises evocative questions as to what a future gender-symmetrical society would look like.


Since then, everything she has been doing is heading towards one same direction: the creation of the virtual world LAND of GOOD that would answer these questions. Harnessing the power of art to serve as a conceptual tool, her digital canvases, multimedia frames, video installations, space invading performances and soon-to-be virtual reality artworks employ visual and sound simulations to confront social mores in order to bring awareness to a gender-asymmetry and the possibility of sustainable gender-balanced society. Her works are included in several collections world wide, such as the ALBA Museum, Beirut Lebanon, Nyenrode Art Fund, The Netherlands, Art Otel collection, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Corporate collection in Dubai, UAE
