Daria Lou Nakov is a French visual artist working with photography and video. She initially studied Architectural design which is still very present in her visual language. She graduated from the Photography department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie with a BA Fine arts and design in July 2021.
Her work questions our relation to images through both spatial and lens based work. Her use of both analog and digital processes to create spaces with images and vise versa, bring both real and imaginary space to life through photographic work.
Since 2016, her projects have been part of group exhibitions and book fairs, such as The Uncut festival at The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in march 2018 & 2019, 'Auspuff' at Looiergracht gallery Amsterdam in may 2019, and most recently in June 2023 in Munich at the Pinakotek der Modern for Der Greif's 15th year anniversary event.
