Galena Sardamova is an interdisciplinary artist from Sofia, Bulgaria. Her work investigates questions of memory, nostalgia, ritual, and (be)longing — as well as their cross-linguistic and cross-cultural nuances. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in May 2020 with a major in Architecture and minors in Fine Arts, Art History, and English. During her undergraduate studies, Galena worked at Slought Foundation, the Barnes Foundation, and the Fabric Workshop and Museum (Philadelphia, PA), and was a member of the ICA Philadelphia Student Board. After graduating, she interned remotely at the Museum of the Moving Image (New York, NY) and worked as a Curatorial Assistant at Swimming Pool (Sofia, Bulgaria).
