Artistic Statement:
I’m always be attracted by paradoxicalness and irrationality. My heros, as I do, lives into their specific wonderfull worlds. The whole point based on characteristics of visual language, clarity and straightness of the stories mesage. Strange / deviant / sensual & sensuous / bodily / imaginative / multilayer mixed with narrativity and different temporality of places, people and situations. I use photography, video and performance as a base for my projects. I call myself performance & visual artist. I live and work in Moscow, Russia.
