Egor Plotnikov

Egor Plotnikov was born in Kirov (Russia) in 1980.

Plotnikov’s works are in private collections inside and outside Russia, including the Russian Culture Fund collection, the Moscow Union of Artists collection, the collection of Russian Academy of Arts, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Aksenov Foundation, “Art-Finance” and Russian regional art museums.

Egor Plotnikov works in the area of figurative painting and sculpture. Paintings and sculpture objects are presented often as combined installations.

Plotnikov researched the theme of real landscape as a social area and painting landscape, the «museum» genre being at the periphery of the contemporary cultural context. Plotnikov paints canvases wastes, edges, and front-end areas which are located at the limits of human habitation and wild nature, and moves the personage of painting, sculpture of viewer, out the edges of the picture. A work of art starts to view itself. Big paintings are shrunk to small insignificant landscape fragments and personage sculpture starts to hide from the viewer. Empty walls/canvas/sheets of paper and space in the exhibition hall become a communication field and an important part of a work of art.

In the contemporary period of crisis when codes are broken and conventions don’t work most important thing is to become a problem of adequacy of pure vision. The artist asks about is it possible today the immediately directly contact the viewer with art and a person with real space.
