Evgeny Antufiev

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.
Marina Dacci director at Collezione Maramotti

Evgeny Antufiev was born in 1986 in Kyzyl, Tuva. In 2008, he became a student of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). In 2009 he became the winner of the «Kandinsky Prize» in the nomination «The young artist. Project of the Year».
