Olga Koroleva (b.1987, Russia) is a London-based artist working across writing, photography, moving image, and live action. She pursues her long-term inquiry into inter-species relationships through the examination of gestures, language and biology. Informed by current debates in animal studies, ethology, anthropology, and queer theory, her work addresses life and liveness of human and non-human animals, organic and inorganic matter, and their multiplicities.

Olga is the founder and leader of The Political Animal group.

Over the past three years she has carried out independent study and research in the field of animal theory, focusing primarily on the image of the wolf found in mythology, biology, and political rhetoric. You can follow her progress on this Research and Development page. Her most recent project Patterns of Care is the evolution of this research and study.

She is currently a Film Practice Fellow at The Centre for Film and Ethics at Queen Mary University of London.
