“In the wake of the general collapse of the space of myth, the knowledge of myth becomes the basis for creativity and the perception of reality.” (E. A.)
Evgeny Antufiev’s first exhibition in Italy marks the completion of a project for Collezione Maramotti: a project which the Russian artist has realized during a period of residence in Reggio Emilia.
Antufiev makes constant use of a variety of objects and materials—cloth, crystals, meteorites, bones, hair, teeth, glue, snake skins, insects, marble, wood—that show no immediate relationship to one another, but which fuse with one another within his installations and find themselves transformed: they come to be involved in a process that’s reminiscent of alchemy.
