Elena Elagina and Igor Makarevich

Av Lars Vilks - 2 juni 2009 22:10

Elena Elagina (b.1949, Russia) and Igor Makarevich (b. 1943, Georgia, USSR) have been described recently as the soul of Moscow Conceptualism. But beyond that the two artists have developed a immense body of work. Moving from a naive artistic position – meaning a simple dialectial relation of the artist on one hand and the work / creation on the other – to a complex phenomenological position. They make the spectators point central to their work and move simultaneously as artistic subjects "inside" the body of their creations. This means they themselves become representations inside their own symbolic field. 

Their work responds to contemporary Russian life and culture, which they believe corrodes individual identity and seeks to efface nonconformist art. Their work is all about destroying myths - public, personal and aesthetic ones. Their art often takes the form of multifaceted constructions, such as installations or collages. 

Their work in the Biennial is the installation The Russian Idea in three pieces Soil, Arhitekton, Black Bread (2008). Picture here.
