How to gather? Acting in a Center in a City in the Heart of the Island of Eurasia

Under challenging circumstances, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art opts for a radical format and changes its structure: the biennale will be condensed into ten days. Artistic, discursive and reflective moments will shape the space. Located in the Pavilion No.1 of VDNKh, it is here that the Moscow Biennale will evolve, as a think tank in real time.

Biennale: Sept 22 - Oct 1, 2015
Documentary exhibition project: Oct 3 - Oct 11, 2015

The conceptual performances and installations of Andrey Kuzkin are inspired by Russian Conceptualism but carry a certain melancholy and brute. The artist’s drawings and objects are sometimes transformed in the course of an exhibition or encounter. Oftentimes Andrey Kuzkin is physically involved in his performances, leaving the direction of the project up to the visitors.

During the ten days of the Moscow Biennale, Andrey Kuzkin will realize a long-period performance every second day. Each visitor becomes an integral part of the project, conducting an action themselves, becoming witnesses in their personal manner, yet connected by Kuzkin’s conceptual framework.
