"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1986 in Russia. Lives and works between Tuva and Moscow.

Deeply linked to the culture of his generation and influenced by pop art, Evgeny Antufiev also entertains a close relationship with the culture of the region in which he was born, Siberia and its Shamanic traditions. His works combine all these aspects: mysterious messages together with “kitsch” contemporary objects, materiality and spirituality. Using a variety of materials, he creates objects and creatures that disorient and attract the viewer. Antufiev's personal and individual artistic research explores the idea of a Wunderkammer in which the microcosm of the intimate and personal objects reflects the macrocosm of the global world.
