In his artistic practice, Jura Shust focuses on the interconnection between rituals and myths with technologies, science, and bio-politics. Making a combination of artificial, extra materials with everyday elements the artist puts attention to contradictions of modernity: a passion for rational knowledge and fetishism from one side, vividly embodied in contemporary networking systems, and deep archaic worldview on the other.
Artist works mainly with installation, graphics, and performative video.

Since 2012 has collaborated with the Museum of Contemporary Art GFZK (Leipzig, DE), Contemporary Art Museum S.M.A.K. (Ghent, BE), Museum de Domijnen (Sittard, NL), Calvert 22 Foundation (London, UK), Blaffer Art Museum (Houston, Texas, US) and other galleries.
In 2016 took part in the 5th Biennale for Young Art in Moscow.
