Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich

Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich is a visual artist, curator and museum director, as well as writer, theatre director, and filmmaker. Exploring a distance between a work of art and its audience, he creates performances and site-specific installations, objects, guerrilla actions and long-durational works that he presents worldwide under curatorship of Hans Ulrich Obrist, RoseLee Goldberg, Klaus Biesenbach, and Marina Abramovic, to name but a few. Fyodor’s Performance Carousel was first shown in 2014 at Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires, then in 2016 as opening event of Wiener Festwochen in Vienna and received Grand Prix at Kuryokhin Art Prize 2015. Pavlov-Andreevich lives and works between Moscow (where he looks after an artist-run space, Solyanka), London and São Paulo.
